Interview with Geoffrey Evans of Humane Society International

Animal agriculture is a key target for reductions because the sector is one of the largest anthropogenic GHG sources.
However, policies that seek to concentrate and intensify animal production in an attempt to make the sector more GHG efficient must also be evaluated for their other societal impacts, including animal welfare.

Interview with Prof. Konrad Osterwalder, Under Secretary General and Rector of the United Nations University

The United Nations University (UNU) is the academic arm of the United Nations (UN). Its goal is to develop sustainable solutions for current and future problems of humankind in all aspects of life. Through a problem-oriented and interdisciplinary approach it aims at applied research and education on a global scale.
 
All the Institutes work matters very strongly related to climate change, such as water issues, desertification, environmental migration, Indigenous Knowledge etc. It can therefore greatly accomplish the need of applied and policy relevant research in the UNFCCC process.
 
The Interview should address why do we need an UN University on top of many Universities world wide? What is the added value and which gap is the UN University filling?

Interview with Meine van Noordwijk, Principal Scientist and Chief Science Advisor, World Agroforestry Centre

Balancing the roles of agriculture and forestry in climate change mitigation and adaptation, food security and poverty alleviation is a key condition for any initiative in developing countries. Hence understanding the trade-offs between these functions is extremely important for creating win-win strategies and opportunities. Landscape approaches aim at balancing incentives for commodities and those for maintenance of assets and services. It focuses on how interactions between forests and agriculture impact on commodities and services including climate change adaptation functions and carbon. pproaches for carbon accounting and associated service and commodity co benefits are also an integral part of whole landscape approaches. Emerging evidence and good practice in Asia, Africa and Latin America will be highlighted.
