There is potential for increased carbon capture by using agricultural land differently. Even though carbon dioxide removal is a necessary part of meeting the Paris climate accord goals, it's not discussed as much as GHG reductions, and is even less associated with food.
Helen Harwatt is an environmental social scientist, with a focus on food systems shifts and their contribution to climate change mitigation goals. Helen’s current projects focus on assessing the impacts of food systems shifts on a range of issues around environmental sustainability, public health and ethics, to identify pathways toward creating food systems that minimize adverse environmental impacts, maximize public health benefits, and address ethical issues.
Dr. Helen Harwatt is Food & Climate Policy Fellow at Harvard Law School and Senior Research Fellow at Chatham House. The session was hosted by Jonny Payne.

Over 25 events were attended by more than 2,000 people from across the globe.
