The IPCC’s special report on climate change and land: What’s in it for Africa?

Source(s):  Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN)

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published its Climate Change and Land: An IPCC Special Report on climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems in August 2019. The Special Report was a response to proposals from governments and observer organisations to the IPCC. It assesses the existing science to date on how greenhouse gases are released and absorbed by land-based ecosystems, and the science on land use and sustainable land management in relation to climate change adaptation and mitigation, desertification, land degradation and food security. The findings are of great importance to decision-makers across Africa and the world.

CDKN – with ODI and SSN – launched this publication which unpacks the Special Report for decision-makers in Africa: The IPCC’s Special Report on Climate Change and Land: What’s in it for Africa?

The IPCC’s own Summary for Policy-Makers focuses principally on global issues and trends. This report distils the richest material available on Africa from the 1,300 pages of the Special Report.
