Cheikh Mbow is Director General at Centre de Suivi Ecologique, Sénégal.

Key messages:

  • Many land-based adaptation and mitigation climate solutions can also combat desertification, land degradation and enhanced food security.
  • Most of the response options assessed contribute positively to sustainable development and other societal goals (high confidence). 
  • IPCC assessment would benefit from more efficient closing of evidence gaps. In particular, it is critical to have better evidence on what natural climate solutions work, under what conditions, and why – in developing countries opportunities to lift global environmental assessments as well as evidence synthesis to the next level.
