Conference:
Beyond land-use emission reduction targets – how to take stock of climate ambition and sustainability in the land use sector?

5:00-6:30 pm CEST
Organized within the framework of the Climate Week NYC.

A webinar organized by IDDRI, within the framework of the Climate Week NYC that takes place on September 20-26.

The Climate Week NYC returns for 2021 with a focus on fulfilling and increasing commitments made by businesses, governments, and organizations. It is the time and place where the world gathers to showcase leading climate action and discuss how to do more, fast.

Description of the session

Achieving net zero emissions by the second half of this century requires rapid and far-reaching transformations of all sectors. The AFOLU sector is the source of roughly 22% of GHG emissions globally, and is unique in its capacity to act as a carbon sink, and is often called to help decarbonizing other sectors by providing biogenically sourced carbon that replaces fossil fuels. The sector is therefore central to reaching global GHG neutrality by 2050, while also contributing to reaching ambitious nature-positive goals by 2030. While the AFOLU sector is playing an increasingly important role in international climate discussions and national climate policies (e.g. the Nationally Determined Contributions, NDCs), sectoral emissions are not yet reducing significantly.

Taking stock of sectoral climate ambition in AFOLU requires more than an assessment of emission reduction targets. It needs an assessment of underlying processes needed to increase sectoral climate ambition.

This event will present a recently published IDDRI report which evaluates recent advances and remaining barriers to increased climate ambition and sustainability in the AFOLU sector.


Provisional agenda

  1. Framing introduction – assessing climate ambition beyond emission numbers (Johannes Svensson, IDDRI)
  2. Approaching AFOLU climate ambition: challenges and enabling conditions
    a. Presentation of sectoral insights (Maria José Sanz Sanchez, B3C)
    b. Presentation of country-specific insights (tbc)
    3. Panel discussion with key international sectoral experts and policymakers,
