The IPCC’s Land Report: What’s in it for Africa

The report’s full name is Climate Change and Land, an IPCC special report on climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. It is one of three special reports that the IPCC is preparing during the current Sixth Assessment Report cycle.

The report was prepared by 107 experts from 52 countries (with a majority of authors from developing countries) and spans more than 1,500 pages. Now, the Climate and Development Knowledge Network has released a succinct guide to the Special Report for decision-makers in Africa.
