Climate Change | Nature-Positive Race to Zero- achieving 2030 UN target to half emissions

The World Economic Forum (WEF), an international public-private organisation, is committed to the world achieving the United Nations’ goal to at least half greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. This goal was set at the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement where governments have agreed to engage in a series of actions, partnering with the private sector, civil society, trade union, etc., in achieving this goal.

Though in Guyana there has been no indication of any serious effort by the Government to initiate such a process- evidence in destructive agrarian practices- other countries are moving ahead to mitigate the adverse consequences of emission in their environment.

According to the WEF, where nature underpins the global economy, accounting for $44 trillion in global economic value, it could deliver more than a third of the solution to climate challenges. Noting that agriculture and other land-use practices account for 24% of global emissions there is an urgent need to ramp up financing to redirect the land-use sectors to a net-zero pathway.

Listen to voices from the public and non-governmental spheres examine the land-use practices and the needed financial incentives to enable global systems transformation to secure a net-zero, nature-positive future
