Race to Zero Dialogue: Soil as a climate solution – getting to scale

17 November 2020, 1:00 – 2:30 pm GMT / 2:00 – 3:30 pm CET

Convened by the High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action, the UNFCCC’s Race-to-Zero Dialogues will chart how entire sectors are investing in an accelerated transition towards a zero-carbon future.

As part of these dialogues, this event, co-hosted by the World Farmers’ Organization (WFO), the 4 per 1000 Initiative and WBCSD will bring together farmers, political and business leaders, and experts to build a multi-stakeholder action plan to scale soil carbon as a climate solution: join the discussion to make sure we get it right.

Recent technical, policy and financial innovations have brought soil health – reflected by soil carbon accrual and long considered too difficult to implement – up the agenda as a critical solution for addressing climate change through a combined effect of cost-efficient carbon sequestration on a large scale, accompanied by other critical elements of climate resilience, like farmer prosperity, reduced risk of flood and drought, replenishment of fresh water sources, reduction of fire hazards, improved quality of food, reduction in synthetic or toxic inputs, and decreased impacts on biodiversity.
