Join us on Tuesday 15th November 19:00-20:00 to hear from our Chief Executive Andy Atkins on our analysis of the conference so far, and to dig a little deeper into the risks and opportunities of looking for climate solutions in nature. We’ll also be joined by special guests TBC.
The biodiversity and climate crises are inextricably linked; climate change is damaging nature and nature will be critical to combatting the climate crisis. Policy makers are increasingly looking for ‘nature-based solutions’ to the climate crisis. For example, by investing in nature and restoring coastal mangrove forests to protect communities from coastal flooding, or restoring valuable habitats such as peatlands to capture carbon.
Both of these interventions are great for wildlife too, win-wins for climate and nature. However, there are risks in these ‘nature based solutions’, which the world must avoid. This is the issue that will be at the heart of the ‘biodiversity day’ at COP27, when nature will be on the agenda of the UN climate change conference.
