COP17, Durban

Letter from IATP, ActionAid International, the African Biodiversity Network and the Gaia Foundation (UK) to the African Agriculture and Environment Ministers, signed by over 100 other signatories.

"We, the undersigned civil society organisations from Africa and around the world, strongly object to a decision in Durban for an agriculture work programme focused on mitigation, which would lead to agricultural soils and agroecological practices being turned into commodities to be sold on carbon markets, or used as sinks to enable industrialised countries to continue to avoid reducing emissions."
