The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will publish its Special Report on Climate Change and Land next week. Following the landmark 2018 report from the body calling for ‘far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society’ to limit global warming to 1.5°C, the latest paper will examine how land is being used, with input from ‘107 leading scientists from 52 countries across all regions of the world’.

Over two years in the making, the Special Report on Climate Change and Land explores how the way we use our land contributes to climate change and how climate change affects our land. It follows the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5oC released in October 2018.

The approved summary for policymakers will be presented in Geneva on 8 August. We will bring you the key points and analysis next week. Sign up for our newsletter to get it straight to your inbox.
