Desertification and Land Restoration – The Climate Connection
Nearly one-third of available arable land has been lost to erosion while land resources are under increasing pressure with growing demand for food. Land degradation is mainly caused by human activities and changing climate. With improved land management and restoration land degradation is reversed and carbon stocks build up in soil which significantly mitigates climate change. This side event focuses on the challenges of land degradation, the goal of land degradation-neutral world, the benefits of soil carbon sequestration and the importance of land restoration capacity building. The event is organized by the Icelandic Ministry for the Environment and Natural Resources.
