Missing Pathways to 1.5°C: The role of the land sector in ambitious climate action

October 15, 2018

Climate ambition that safeguards land rights, biodiversity and food

This report examines three overlapping crises: climate change, biodiversity loss and the growing land and other rights abuses against Indigenous Peoples and local communities.

It challenges the assumption that we need to look to geoengineering solutions such as Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) to deal with the climate crisis and concludes with an inspiring vision of our future. A future that social justice and faith-based organisations pursued long before engaging in the climate conversation—namely, strong implementation of human rights, indigenous land rights and the right to food; and the protection and restoration of healthy ecosystems that support all life on our shared planet.
