Gund Tea: Lini Wollenberg, Climate Change Mitigation on Agriculture-Forest Landscapes

Dr. Eva “Lini” Wollenberg discusses how agriculture and forestry contribute about one-third of anthropogenic emissions, yet also are one of the most promising sectors for mitigation. She addresses the challenges in managing mitigation in agriculture-forestry landscapes, including a framework for "sustainability governance" of major commodities such as livestock, palm oil and cocoa in forest areas.
