The Nature4Climate coalition welcomes a new paper released this week citing the need for both natural and energy solutions to stabilize our climate. We are pleased to see the ongoing discussion around natural climate solutions (NCS) which reinforces our message that reducing emissions from fossil fuels is absolutely essential to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Untapped potential of American land to combat climate change
In the wake of the landmark United Nations 1.5 degrees report, a new study shows that efforts to improve land use at a US state level could deliver major results to mitigate climate change. The study shows how the United States’ forests, grasslands and coastal wetlands could play a much bigger role in reducing global warming than previously thought.
How big data can help us fight climate change faster
Big data — whether historical or real-time — can also help us tackle the problem, for example by locating harmful emissions or identifying pressure points along the supply chain. This transformative change in data capabilities is an example of what the World Economic Forum refers to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Five reflections on last week’s UN climate change report
“Terrifying.” “Time to Wake Up.” “Final Call”. “Ten years to Act” were just some of the headlines. Could this report, as shocking as it is, actually be the much-needed catalyst for action we’ve all been waiting for? Read what TNC’s Director of Global Lands has to say.
Missing Pathways to 1.5°C: The role of the land sector in ambitious climate action
ActionAid and the Climate, Land, Ambition and Rights Alliance (CLARA) released a new report on climate change “Missing Pathways to 1.5°C: The role of the land sector in ambitious climate action.” In the aftermath of last week’s climate report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world must now ask tough questions on the transformation and development pathways that are urgently needed.
N4C spokespeople respond to IPCC 1.5 report and the importance of NCS
The much-awaited special report on global warming at 1.5C from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) calls for “rapid, far reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” if governments and industries are to avoid uncontrollable natural tipping points. N4C spokespeople responded to the report and the importance of NCS in stabilising the word’s climate.
