Reflections on COP 21 – Meet the researcher

The complex effect of climate changes on agriculture, human livelihoods, and poverty

Lund University Sustainability Forum published an interview with LUCSUS Professor Lennart Olsson, specialising on land management, agriculture, and poverty: “There is now a strong sense of urgency surrounding efforts to combat climate change, such as emission reductions, adequate funding, and loss and damage compensation.” The upcoming COP21 negotiation in Paris is the platform where proposed efforts are highly expected to be formed into an agreement.Some important topics that will be negotiated in Paris include emission reductions, mitigation and adaption funding, and loss and damage compensation. Lennart comments that, “There is a bigger chance for a concrete outcome in Paris, but the proposed INDCs are not enough to meet the 2 degrees Celsius target.”
