In this webinar, experts from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, FAO and Oxfam will share their latest research on supporting low-carbon transformation in the agriculture sector through enhancing 2020 NDCs.
Soil is eroding more quickly than it is being formed. Sustainable land management can help control soil erosion, protect watersheds and reduce carbon emissions.
As the avocado industry continues to grow in Mexico, particularly in Michoacán and Jalisco, deforestation, water stress and social challenges compound.
To prevent the most dangerous impacts of climate change, greenhouse gas emissions will have to reach net zero by 2050. That will require both deep cuts in emissions and the removal of remaining emissions directly from the atmosphere. Making that happen will take concerted U.S. innovation akin to a moonshot. In this case, it's a CarbonShot.
New WRI research finds that the United States needs to make large-scale investments in carbon removal in the coming years if the country is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This working paper identifies a consolidated set of high-priority, near-term, federal policy options for advancing carbon removal pathways.
Countries that rely on agricultural exports need to start thinking now about how they can protect that trade by boosting agricultural resilience to climate impacts.
New Delhi's growing industry and transport sectors contribute to year-round air pollution, but the city's air quality reaches crisis levels during the crop-burning season in October and November.
This paper discusses practical options for incorporating more ambitious, explicit, and directed actions in the agriculture sector in enhanced NDCs.
Data on Aqueduct Food reveals that one-third of the world's irrigated crops are grown in areas facing extremely high water stress.
Entrepreneurs across Africa are growing businesses that revitalize degraded land and fight climate change, while turning a profit and creating jobs. Investors and lawmakers should pay attention.
September brought alarming signs of a changing climate, including record-breaking hurricanes and reports on rapid loss of snow and ice, a steep decline in U.S. bird species and risks to wheat crops.
According to data displayed on Global Forest Watch Fires, there have been 66,000 fire alerts in Indonesia from January through the end of September. While this is much lower than fire levels in 2015 — which saw more than 110,000 alerts at the end of September — it far exceeds levels in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
At the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Bank, and several governments announced financial commitments of $790 million and assistance to enhance resilience of over 300 million small-scale food producers in the face of mounting climate impacts.
Coffee farmers face a double threat from climate change and dropping prices. But a group of Costa Rican farmers are finding solutions and transforming their corner of the industry.
Global Commission on Adaptation report finds that investing $1.8 trillion globally from 2020 to 2030 in five areas could yield $7.1 trillion in net benefits.
If China's non-CO2 emissions were a country, they would be the 7th largest emitter of total GHGs in the world. Here's how China can clean them up.
More and more fast food restaurants are adding plant-based meals to menus. Behavioral science research reveals five quick, low-cost tips to boost sales.
The latest IPCC report confirms a lot we already knew about the relationship between tropical forests and climate change, as well as reveals some relatively new science about how forests interact with the atmosphere. The bottom line? Protecting forests—especially tropical forests—is one of the most important strategies for both climate mitigation and adaptation.
A new IPCC report found there could be significant benefits to land-based carbon removal, such as through afforestation and restoration. But if deployed incorrectly, these strategies could create greater pressures on land and compromise food security and ecosystem health.
