CCC land use project update

This briefing note provides an update on the Committee on Climate Change and Adaptation Sub-Committee’s ongoing work on land use.

Choices about how non-developed land is used and managed are important both in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for the impacts of climate change. The Committee is therefore exploring how improved use and management of land could deliver against both mitigation and adaptation objectives to 2050 and beyond.

This briefing note accompanies supporting research undertaken by a consortium led by the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute. It presents the main findings from that work.

The Committee is currently running a tender to take the next phase of its work on land use forward.

The closing date is 9 October.
