    Land use practices contribute to both the emission and sequestration of greenhouse gases. Land is where the struggle to adapt to climate change will be won or lost by the poorest of the poor.

It can also foster the synergies continually called for by Parties to the three sister Rio Conventions.

Land stores twice as much organic carbon as vegetation and the atmosphere combined.
