Established in 1977, but long without a management plan or budget, the Mae Sa-Kog Ma UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve (MAB) focuses on the relationship between people and the environment.
The agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) sector is a major source of emissions, but is also a central pillar in the economies of many developing countries. Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) balance economic growth with climate change mitigation actions.
To ensure economic expansion while also contributing to global efforts to combat climate change, many developing countries are adopting Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) among other initiatives. Because the agriculture, forestry and land use (AFOLU) sectors are key economic areas in many developing countries, they are a central focus of LEDS.
