Seven recommendations from Aarhus to COP15

Forest conservation including Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) constitute a major and cost-effective CC mitigation opportunity

Biodiversity and in particular forests also constitute a major part of the solution to the CC problem. Emissions from land use change, especially tropical deforestation, contribute to ~20% of total anthropogenic CHG emissions. A important facet of CC mitigation is therefore forest conservation including reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD), especially in relation to carbon- and biodiversity-rich tropical forests. By reducing pressure on tropical forests, REDD is also likely to have direct benefits for biodiversity. Afforestation/reforestation can also contribute importantly to carbon sequestration and reduce pressure on forest biodiversity. To realize this key mitigation, it is absolutely crucial that economic structures providing incentives for forest conservation are implemented.

Key point: Biodiversity needs to be an integrated part of the CC mitigation and adaptation effort

CC adaptation and mitigation in other sectors can have positive, neutral, or negative impacts on biodiversity. Synergies could be promoted by formulating integrated policies cross-linking major UN conventions, notably UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) and CBD (Convention on Biological Diversity).
