LETTER: EIA Signs Letter for Comprehensive Land Use Planning
In this sign-on letter, EIA, with 54 international and regional organizations, calls on the ADP to take a comprehensive land-use planning approach to create a global climate agreement that effectively addresses emissions from the land-use sector. Such an approach would enhance mitigation across all sectors, while protecting ecosystem health and rights to land, livelihoods, and food security.
The central role played by the land sector in providing food and livelihood security of peoples, communities, and countries means that mitigation policies must ensure food security and sovereignty, biodiversity protection, as well as social and environmental standards and safeguards. Therefore, a global climate agreement must support and strengthen sustainable and low-emission land-use decisions as well as good governance at all levels of land use management.
