LEDS GP factsheet: The Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use Working Group


Countries are facing multiple, interrelated challenges, including protecting their remaining forests and increasing food production in sustainable and resilient ways. Successfully achieving this will provide integrated benefits to all, ranging from safeguarding local livelihoods to protecting the biodiversity and ecosystems provided by forests and reducing rural poverty. Adopting low-emission strategies for both agricultural and forest production can also mitigate some of the effects of climate change.

The Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) Working Group, part of LEDS GP, provides technical assistance, tools, training and platforms to support low-emission development across the agriculture, forestry and other land use sectors. The Working Group serves as a platform for engaging decision-makers, practitioners and researchers, for building a community of practice, and for linking networks of agriculture and forestry experts.
