Ms Veerle Vandeweerd focused on three aspects: UNDP's contributions to the negotiations with respect to land; the importance of agroforestry in mitigating climate change; and the complexity of the issues under consideration by the UNFCCC. She drew attention to a publication developed jointly with the UNCCD and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), showing the linkage between drylands and climate change. She made the case for incentives to promote soil carbon sequestration in the drylands and suggested giving attention to this issue and to sustainable drylands management in the section on agriculture in the Chair's negotiating text, noting that it focuses on farmers. Using the example of improved drylands management in Niger, she emphasized the value of agroforestry and dry forests in sustainable drylands management. And on complexity, she noted that 50% of the emissions from manufacturing is generated in the production of goods for consumption in a small set of countries, and called for a holistic examination of the interdependence of issues.
