Cultured meat and cellular agriculture made an appearance in the latest IPCC report as ways to limit the pressures on finite natural resources.
Hi Meera, 

On Monday, the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released part two of their sixth assessment report since the group's founding in 1988. The findings are grim BUT there is a silver lining for the New Harvest community :) 

New Harvest-funded research conducted by Natalie Rubio is cited in Chapter 5 of the latest IPCC report (Ch. 5, Page 54).

Cultured meat and cellular agriculture are also mentioned by name as ways to limit pressures on finite natural resources (Ch. 5, Page 158). 

The full 3,675 page report assesses the effects of climate change and potential adaptation strategies for government policymakers. For cellular agriculture—and a NH grantee directly—to be included in the report is HUGE. It shows that the world's authority on climate change sees cultured meat as a credible intervention.
I recommend this Twitter thread for a breakdown of the rest of the report. As the situation in Ukraine worsens and we teeter on the edge of climate collapse, I'm grateful to be part of a community taking action each and every day to build a better future. 

All the best,
Meera Zassenhaus

P.S. If you're on Twitter, you can spread the news about NH-funded research being included in the latest IPCC report by retweeting this. If you aren't, this email is also shareable as a blog post here.
