Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
The Organic Stream
EPISODE SUMMARYIn part two of our climate talks episode, we're delving deeper into the main discussion points, the challenges, and the dangers we're facing right now in making agriculture and soil a key player in climate change strategies. By the end, we should have a decent overview of the situation and will be all set for COP22. We'll also be sharing insights from the International Compost Roundtable - a side event that took place during COP21, with speakers Enzo Favoino of Zero Waste Europe, climate change advisor Calla Rose Ostrander, and Teresa Anderson of Action Aid.We discuss: the latest developments from the SBSTA, the issues with linking soil carbon sequestration with cutting emissions, the dangers of greenwashing, and how to support compost markets in a fair, sustainable way.
