Restoration, Conservation and Biodiversity Protection: The Understated Climate Powerhouse

Details

September 18
2:40 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Add to Calendar September 18 2:40 pm September 18 3:30 pm America/New_York Restoration, Conservation and Biodiversity Protection: The Understated Climate Powerhouse

Long overshadowed by discussions on renewable energy and emissions reduction, the restoration, conservation, and protection of biodiversity has emerged as a central pillar in the fight against global warming. The adoption of the far-reaching Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework to address biodiversity loss, restore ecosystems and protect indigenous rights at COP15 in Montreal marked an important step.

However, with an agreed set of solutions far from implementation, we ask:

How close are we teering towards irreversible biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse?
How can nature-based solution implementation be driven rapidly and effectively to avoid the dangerous ‘tipping point’ scenario?
How will technology be part of the equation and which solutions are likely to play a central role?
