ARE YOU A FUNDER/PHILANTHROPIST WORKING ON CLIMATE IMPACTS TO FOOD SECURITY, BIODIVERSITY, AND HUMAN LIVELIHOODS?
Agriculture, forestry and land use (AFOLU) is a source of one-fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions. It is also the only sector of the economy that provides a reliable and cost-effective sink for atmospheric carbon. Yet, increasing evidence suggests that climate solutions in soils and forests fail to deliver lasting benefits, either for carbon sequestration or local livelihoods, when they are designed too narrowly and without community involvement. Put positively, climate change mitigation and adaptation solutions succeed when they are designed and implemented from the grassroots up, at locally-relevant scales, through leadership within local communities, and in relation to the intersectionality of local environmental and economic issues. Bonus: these initiatives can also help regenerate healthy food systems and save wild biodiversity!
Sound complicated and difficult? It definitely can be. But EcoAgriculture Partners has more than 15 years of experience helping communities and their national and international partners design and manage these integrated strategies. And we’re convinced that a new era of integrated management is beginning.
Whether you’re an experienced supporter of integrated approaches or just getting started, join us September 11th to learn about the coming integrated landscape revolution. As leaders gather in San Francisco to make pledges at the Global Climate Action Summit, learn how to put those pledges into action effectively at this special event at a gorgeous home and winery in the Los Altos Hills.
