Nations, companies, and other institutions are responding to the accelerating climate crisis challenge by making net-zero pledges. But the magnitude of the transformation required has led these net-zero pledges to rely heavily on carbon offsets. Offsets attempt to make good an emission in one place or sector with some kind of carbon (or carbon equivalent) capture elsewhere. Land-based carbon sequestration has become an increasingly common component of net-zero pledges.
This hybrid COP15 side-event, cohosted by IATP, brings forward evidence in support of agroecology as a fundamental basis for a global biodiversity strategy. Read the policy brief in English, en español and en français.

In the face of mounting climate chaos and growing demands for action, many countries, cities and agri-food corporations have responded with pledges to reach "net zero" greenhouse gas emissions. While these promises may sound ambitious, they are often followed up with few details, rely on problematic carbon offsets and exaggerate mitigation potentials.
