The Global Forest Coalition (GFC) released the latest edition of their magazine, Forest Cover 57: 1.5°C from a community perspective, which is the same name as the side event that we co-hosted with them at COP24. The issue looks critically at IPCC’s report on 1.5°C of global warming. It analyses what such a target means from a community perspective and makes the case for community conservation as an effective, safe and equitable way of removing carbon from the atmosphere.
Associate Wanqing Zhou wrote about our work in China for the GFC magazine. The consumption of animal products have been increasing in China, at growing costs to the environment. A dietary shift away from industrial meat, dairy, and eggs is essential to reducing the pressure on ecosystem destruction. To achieve this, organizations within and outside China are working to tap the power of communities to make the change happen. She also writes about the Second Good Food Hero Summit in Chengdu. This summit facilitated local actions, built collaborative networks, and explored the potential of working with partners from different parts of the food system to catalyze system-level changes.
