LE FORESTE CI SALVERANNO?

Le foreste ci salveranno?

Basta piantare alberi per affrontare la crisi climatica? Aumentare, mantenere e gestire sostenibilmente le foreste è necessario, ma non sufficiente. Pur se piantare nuovi alberi è molto utile, la drastica riduzione delle emissioni di CO2 legate ai combustibili fossili resta inevitabile.

COP25 E IPCC 2022

mentre alla COP25 a Madrid si è discusso in modo poco produttivo (vedi) l’IPCC sta lavorando per il suo sesto report sul Climate Change, che vedrà la luce solo nel 2022.

IPCC – Land is a Critical Resource

IPCC – Land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. At the same time, keeping global warming to well below 2ºC can be achieved only by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors including land and food, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in its latest report on Thursday.

The IPCC, the world body for assessing the state of scientific knowledge related to climate change, its impacts and potential future risks, and possible response options, saw the Summary for Policymakers of the Special Report on Climate Change and Land (SRCCL) approved by the world’s governments on Wednesday in Geneva, Switzerland.

It will be a key scientific input into forthcoming climate and environment negotiations, such as the Conference of the Parties of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (COP14) in New Delhi, India in September and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Santiago, Chile, in December.

“Governments challenged the IPCC to take the first ever comprehensive look at the whole land-climate system. We did this through many contributions from experts and governments worldwide. This is the first time in IPCC report history that a majority of authors – 53% – are from developing countries,” said Hoesung Lee, Chair of the IPCC.

Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C (SR15)

Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C (SR15)

Following the decision of the panel at its 43rd Session to accept the invitation from the UNFCCC, at its 44th Session, the Panel approved the outline of

Global Warming of 1.5 °C, an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.
The report was finalized in October 2018
