Why Nature? Why Now? How nature is key to achieving a 1.5C world
Join us for a high-level discussion to understand the critical and often overlooked connection between the climate crisis and our food and land use systems. Our agriculture models, our eating habits, and the way we transform land, all contribute to the climate crisis, which, in turn, threatens global food security. This must change and we have an opportunity to do so now.

With COP26 just weeks away, countries are submitting enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions to reduce GHG emissions. It is critical that they include the food and land use sector. The opportunities in doing so are remarkable, and our panelists will examine the many Natural Climate Solutions available. That is, how ecosystems can help mitigate climate change if we protect, restore and manage them well. Our speakers will take a close look at some of the key data presented in the Food and Land Use Coalition’s (FOLU) latest brief Why Nature? Why Now? How nature is key to achieving a 1.5C world, to be launched on Oct. 18. They will also dive into case studies from Africa and Indonesia. As the IPCC clearly warned in August, there is no pathway to reaching net zero by 2050 without nature.
