Growing populations, rapid urbanization and increased consumption put unprecedented pressure on land, water and air resources. We show how to manage these resources together to protect food security, human health and biodiversity.
Emissions of greenhouse gases are built into our economic systems. Our research shows the benefits of a low-carbon future and describes how we get there by mitigating and adapting to climate change.
