Rainfall Recycling as a landscape function

  1. 1. ‘Rainfall recycling’ as a landscape function: connecting SDGs 6, 13 and 15 Global atmosphere greenhouse gas concentrations Fossil fuel use Ocean tem- peratures Atmospheric moisture Atmospheric circulation UNFCCC Water availability for people & agriculture Rainfall Water-related disasters Forests & trees outside forest
  2. 2. ‘Rainfall recycling’ as a landscape function: connecting SDGs 6, 13 and 15 Global atmosphere greenhouse gas concentrations Fossil fuel use Ocean tem- peratures Atmospheric moisture Atmospheric circulation UNFCCC Water availability for people & agriculture Rainfall Water-related disasters Forests & trees outside forest  Teleconnections  collective action at continental scales  Existing blue water agreements & rights miss links to ‘drivers’  Site-specificity of net effects of forests on water for people  UNFCCC is mandated to focus on GHG’s  Direct climate effects of trees matter  Landscape-scale SDG coherence options
