We are facing the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss. Land management emits greenhouse gases, which contributes to climate change, but certain land uses can suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and lock it away. However, not all of these land based climate change options are also good for biodiversity. This talk will be about how we make sure that changes to land use and land management help tackle the twin crises, and to meet our international commitments on climate change and biodiversity.
