Land Use Dialogues
Policy Dialogue Brief
July 2018

Actions on global forests can provide over one-third of the mitigation needed between now and 2030 to meet the Paris Agreement's goal of limiting climate change to 1.5°C. The role of forests must be leveraged to prompt policymakers and key stakeholders to take action, and to give forests value in the real economy.

This policy dialogue brief presents key observations and recommendations gathered as a part of a series of dialogues on the land use sector and climate change. Issue experts, policymakers, and civil society representatives explore ways to protect, expand, and manage forests responsibly and cost-effectively to provide immediate emissions reductions. The brief comes ahead of critical political moments, such as the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Special Report on 1.5°C, the Global Climate Action Summit, and the Talanoa Dialogue—opportunities to revisit these ideas and put them in action.
