- Analyses in IPCC Climate Change 2007, UNEP Global Environment Outlook 4, OECD Environmental Outlook to 2030 and the IAASTD Agriculture Assessment all show that swift action is needed, worldwide, to achieve the internationally set targets. Land use emerges as a new theme for international policy, as the competition over land is growing. The assessments infer that many of the solutions are already known and that possible measures are theoretically affordable. This report focuses on two areas that warrant global attention: ‘agriculture, food and biodiversity’ and ‘energy, climate and air pollution’.
