Why natural climate solutions are about much more than carbon
- How we use land will be doubly important over the next decade: not only in reducing carbon emissions, but also in offsetting emissions from other sectors.
- Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) are activities that bring carbon reduction together with other benefits such as biodiversity, land restoration and support for rural and indigenous communities.
- The world needs to integrate conservation, restoration and sustainable production systems into a wider value system, rather than simply focusing on carbon offsets.
