PwC comments on the IPCC’s climate change and land report

Aug 08, 2019

Commenting on the IPCC’s climate change and land report, Lit Ping Low, sustainability and climate change assistant director at PwC, said:

“Based on the available evidence, the IPCC has identified a long list of measures which can support climate change action as well as improve food security and protect against desertification and land degradation. However some of the more often-cited measures in tackling climate change, such as switching from fossil fuel to biofuels, reforestation and afforestation, may involve more difficult trade-offs particularly in addressing global food security. The tension between feeding a growing population with a rising middle class versus protecting the global climate systems will require a combination of strong and long-term political will, innovative technology, policy and financial incentives.”
