Climate Change, Land and Food: Implications for Saskatchewan

At the global scale, land is struggling with the burden placed on it to meet our current and future needs. Climate change is adding to this burden and potentially undermining food security. Limiting global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, well below two degrees, or also below 3 degrees, will involve removing CO2 from the atmosphere. This might include using bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, or expansion of forests. This presentation reviews the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Land and Climate Report's findings on land use, risks, response options, and pathways linking socio-economic development, climate mitigation responses, and policy, with a focus on the implications for Saskatchewan.
