COP-26: Panel presents solutions for low-carbon agriculture
The 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP-26) takes place between November 1 and 12 in Glasgow and aims to secure and strengthen the commitment of countries in regard to their targets to reduce carbon emissions.
The program will include an important debate organised by Imaflora in partnership with CDP Latin America and Coalizão Brasil Clima, Florestas e Agricultura. The main objective of the panel, titled "Scaling up low-carbon practices in Brazilian agribusiness," is to debate the role of tools for the implementation of sustainable practices in Brazilian agriculture and cattle-ranching.
The event is also going to include the first results of Imaflora's Carbon on Track Program, carried out for Minerva Foods as part of its Renove project. The project calculated emissions and carbon sequestration levels in 25 farms in five Latin American countries, showing the effects of good farming practices. In addition, the panel will discuss the contribution of tracking mechanisms in the fight against deforestation and the perceptions and expectations of large international buyers.
Date: November 6 from 1pm to 2:15pm (Glasgow) – 9am to 10:15pm (Brasília)
Place: Brazil Climate Action Hub
