COP25 Climate: Unintended Consequences paganini in Madrid

COP25 Climate: Unintended Consequences

I proudly took part to a high level panel at the COP25 organized by the UN in Madrid. I had the opportunity to bring facts – science based facts – on palm oil. I demonstrated that (1) it’s an important food ingredient that ensures a healthy, nutritious and safe diet for billions of people worldwide. 

Paganini Non Ripete - e-zine Road to the Future

The weekly e-zine that analyzes economic and social facts, elaborates and shares ideas, helps anticipating the future.

(2) The palm oil supply chain is a global benchmark for sustainability. The palm oil industry is leading the way in the adoption of certification schemes and best practices to protect biodiversity. 

(3) The palm oil industry provides millions of jobs worldwide, particularly in developing countries. It promotes prosperity, it enhances life conditions how and it fosters innovation.

I provided data that demonstrate that boycotting palm oil have unintended consequence: for instance, alternative crops/farming use more land because they are less productive. By boycotting it hundreds of thousands of jobs are lost in emerging countries with inevitable consequences.

Those who strike and shout are might follow a dream of a certain climate but they avoid any discussion, they have no inputs on how to balance the needs of 7.6 billion people.

I am disappointed that few Government committed to participate. Even the one that find climate change absurd should have taken part to the discussions representing their positions. Billion of people wait for an answer. I took part to the debate and I confronted some critics. The scientific arguments once more proved to be solid and strong.

 

Here some pictures about my participation.
