The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has just released a new report on climate change. The synthesis report, prepared as part of a collaborative effort between governments and scientists around the world, confirms that human activities have unequivocally caused global warming.
Among the practices mentioned in the report are energy use, land use and land use changes, as well as unsustainable consumption and production patterns. It also stresses that 22% of global greenhouse gas emissions currently come from agriculture, forestry and land use.
“We must act immediately on a large scale. Building sustainable and resilient agrifood systems is essential to address the climate crisis, food insecurity and biodiversity loss”, said Maria Helena Semedo, FAO Deputy Director-General.
