The full title reflects the breadth of the report, which covers:
- greenhouse gas fluxes related to land;
- interactions between climate change and desertification, land degradation and food security;
- land-related impacts and risks; response options that help adapt to climate change;
- response options that reduce land related emissions or enhance the take-up of carbon by land systems;
- and links to sustainable development more broadly.
