This presentation will first focus on low-GHG development pathways for agriculture, forestry and land use (AFOLU) in Brazil, India and Indonesia, developed together with in-country research teams in the respective country. Specifically, it will present an analysis of the importance of the AFOLU sector for national emission reductions and the respective drivers of transformation in AFOLU in the three countries. Second, we will explore how to draw policy implications from the pathways, and the first steps towards the definition of a framework for the analysis of policy packages in AFOLU will be presented.

The One Health approach is a global public health strategy that emphasises collaboration and communication across human, animal, and environmental health domains to achieve optimal well-being. Originating in response to zoonotic outbreaks like SARS and Ebola (and later COVID), it is integral to various global commitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
