Providing scientific data to technical bodies and countries
Technical reports used by UNFCCC parties to inform negotiations and Paris Agreement implementation have weight and legitimacy with negotiators, but previous reports have not included enough science about the link between animal food consumption and climate. How can CSOs get such information into more technical reports? How can this help to further legitimize CSOs as scientific technical advisors to UNFCCC parties?
Question: IPCC Report on Land Use
The IPCC is preparing a special report on “climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and green house gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems.” This could be a great opportunity to get existing diet/climate research into a technical report. Nominations for authors of the report are due Wednesday, May 17, 2017. More info here: http://www.ipcc.ch/report/sr2/
Does your organization have accreditation to nominate an author? Would you recommend specific authors to nominate?
