IPPC’s special report on climate change and land management this August lifted the lid on impacts detailing the already growing human pressure land is under, further exacerbated by climate change. This is the first time the majority of authors were from developing countries, at 53%.

Feeding the world in a changing climate requires vital focus on sustainable and restorative land management.
