Watch this High-level Panel Discussion on the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2014, in Lima, Peru, during COP20. Adaptation-based mitigation is one solution for addressing climate change. Therefore it is important to identify what the international community can do support on the ground implementation of adaptation-based mitigation. A landscapes approach can help overcome obstacles and foster cross-sectoral collaboration, which will be also key to meet targets set out by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This session explores the challenges and opportunities for adaptation-based mitigation activities. Panellists share their experiences and perspectives on the potential for such activities to address climate change while contributing to national development.
