Gallo Rosso, Laxenburg
On December 6-8 2017, IIASA will host the FOLU-FABLE kick off meeting to discuss how gaps in available geospatial modeling analyses can best be filled in each country; how to make the global FABLE network work; which outputs to prioritize; and how to mobilize the necessary resources.
Food, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Land, and Energy (FABLE) is an initiative to develop consistent global and national pathways towards sustainable land use and food systems by 2050.
The FABLE pathways initiative under the Food and Land-use Coalition (FOLU) aims to address three challenges through a global network of research institutions from the major G20 countries and other countries with large land-use and food sectors:
Led by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), and the EAT Foundation, the initiative will mobilize leading research institutions in each country as well as global knowledge organizations spanning the full FABLE spectrum.
Initiated by IIASA and the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and implemented with partners around the world under the umbrella of The World in 2050 Initiative, FABLE aims to address the following challenges:
Without robust long-term pathways, countries are likely to lock themselves into policy dead-ends that will have severe unintended consequences. A central objective is to deliver rapid results that can inform global and national discussions on the implementation of the SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement.
