5 Takeaways For New England From U.N. Report On Climate Change And Land Use

by Miriam Wasser for EarthWhile, WBUR

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is out with a new report Thursday examining how land use contributes to climate change and other environmental problems.

The report, Climate Change and Land, is the second of three special reports from the United Nations panel. “Global Warming of 1.5ºC” was published last October, and a third report about oceans and the frozen world is expected later this year.

While this new report is global in scope — and particularly focuses on desertification, land degradation, deforestation and agricultural practices — there are some important recommendations that can be applied in New England to help mitigate climate change.

Read the whole story, which includes links to the IPCC 2019 report Climate Change and Land [pdf].
