Climate Challenges after the Glasgow Conference: The Roles of Forests and Soils


Jonathan M. Harris and Anne-Marie Codur presented at the United States Society for Ecological Economics Conference on The Post-Covid Economy: Centering Justice, Sustaining Ecosystems June 21-24, 2022. Following the COP26 Glasgow climate conference in 2021, there remains a substantial gap between pledged and needed global emissions reductions. In addition to reducing emissions, closing this gap requires increasing carbon removal from the atmosphere by natural systems including forests, wetlands, and soils. Harris and Codur examined the policy initiatives needed to realize the potential of natural climate solutions, with a view to “closing the gap” at the COP27 conference in November 2022.
