General

"ClimateWorks’ Climate and Land Use Alliance has a mission to realize the potential of forested and agricultural landscapes to mitigate climate change, benefit people, and protect the environment, primarily in Indonesia, Brazil, and Mesoamerica. Land use — from deforestation, land degradation, and the draining and burning of tropical peatlands to fertilizer application and rice and cattle production — is responsible for about 25% of human-related greenhouse gas emissions. More effective land use protects the climate by reducing carbon emissions and preserving nature’s vital carbon sinks. "
