LARGE-SCALE DEFORESTATION IS REPLACED WITH LARGE-SCALE LAND RESTORATION AND AGRICULTURE SHIFTS TO EARTH FRIENDLY PRACTICES.
Outcomes
  1. The world’s nations, civil society institutions, and corporations must act to end net deforestation by the 2020s, putting us on a path to reducing emissions from forestry and other land use 95% below 2010 levels by 2030.
  2. Restore and conserve at least 150 million hectares of degraded land, enhancing biodiversity and building ecosystem resilience.
  3. Ramp up the implementation of sustainable agricultural practices that reduce CO2 emissions, increase CO2 removals, and halt the growth in non-CO2 emissions.
Strategies
  1. Coalitions and alliances between governments and the private sector remove commodity-driven deforestation from all supply chains by 2020.
  2. Coalitions and alliances establish increase membership base with stronger criteria for sustainable agriculture tied with responsible land investment and earth friendly agriculture, such as 4 per 1000 initiative.
  3. Developed economies and forested developing countries enter into partnerships that scale up international flows for REDD+, focus increases on mechanisms that generate verified emissions reductions, an additional reduction of 1 GtCO2e is financed per year from 2020 and beyond.
  4. Raise visibility of land restoration in both forests (forest management) and agriculture (soil management) creating a new norm on land use.
  5. A voluntary market or other mechanisms for earth friendly agriculture becomes a viable incentive based solution.
