What can be the role of the law in achieving climate change goals in the agriculture sector?

As we know, agriculture, including forestry and land-use change is one of the key sectors affected by and having an impact on climate change.

On the other side, climate goals often have an important legal and institutional underpinning; therefore, these elements are key to support the implementation of the PA and related NDCs. However, legislation addressing climate change in the agriculture sectors still in its early stages.

Join us on Monday 1st of April to learn more about the tools developed by the Development Law Service (LEGN) of the FAO & partners in response to those challenges.

According to a recent study, between 2003 and 2012, approximately 67 million hectares (1.7%) of forest land is burned annually, mostly in tropical South America and Africa. The immediate and long-term impacts of wildfires can be devastating to communities, economies and forest ecosystems. The increase in forest wildfires around the world also threatens the long-term permanence of carbon stocks in all types of forests, as well as forest regeneration and reforestation projects. Many countries in Africa are particularly vulnerable to this threat, with Sudan being one of them. How the country is rethinking its fire management and monitoring in the framework of its REDD+ activities, and how can innovations in national forest monitoring facilitate the process?

As the most populated country in Africa, Nigeria is facing enormous pressure on its natural resources. According to Global Forest Resources Assessment 2015, the current deforestation rate is estimated at 3.5% - one of the highest in the world. The Federal Government of Nigeria is determined to protect and sustainably manage its remaining forest resources and, therefore, embarked upon REDD+ with support of the UN-REDD Programme – which supported a national programme from 2012 to 2016, and the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF).

Through the work of its National Technical Working Group on Safeguards and SIS (TWG-S&SIS), Mongolia has completed two key outputs of its national safeguards approach. The National REDD+ Safeguards Framework sets out how Mongolia will address and respect the safeguards, and describes the process undertaken to develop the national safeguards approach. The two reports on Mongolia's SIS, REDD+ Safeguard Information System: Proposed Structure, Functions and Roles (vol.1) and Annexes and Workshop Reports (vol. 2), presents the design of the SIS, as well as a detailed plan for operationalising a SIS database.

Mongolia is known for its steppes and deserts, but it is a forest nation, too. Boreal forests line Mongolia’s northern border with Siberia, covering 14.2 million hectares, or nine percent of this vast country. They are part of a huge expanse of boreal forest – the world’s largest terrestrial biome – that stretches right across the earth’s northern latitudes. These forests are both intensely affected by climate change but they are also a possible, partial solution to it.

Port Moresby, 4 December 2018- National Forest Monitoring Systems (NFMS), a key element of the Warsaw Framework under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), is a prerequisite for countries working to reduce emissions from deforestation, forest degradation and activities to enhance forest carbon stocks, or more commonly known as REDD+. The function of the NFMS is to monitor changes in a country’s forests, which will help improve forest policy making and planning.
