Meet the speakers


This session explores why and how nature – natural and managed ecosystems – are an essential strategy for mitigating climate change. Nearly a quarter of all global greenhouse gases stem from land use, including the conversion of forests into agriculture, destruction of mangrove forests, the draining of peatlands, and unsustainable agricultural practices, among other practices. However, protecting, restoring and sustainably managing the worlds ecosystems could provide more than a third of our climate mitigation solution. This session focuses on the importance of nature as a climate solution, and highlights steps that governments and local communities can take to place nature at the heart of their climate action.

This session will take place on 24 September 2020, 9:00-10:30 AM (EDT). The event will be broadcast live on this page.

With our busy time, we forget to put a light and effort on spread the saving nature concept. The video is likable and beneficial. It would be good if there is a group on a slack or WhatsApp to keep such a topic always reminded.

Thanks for this event, which is more than relevant. I would like to know if during the sessions it would be the possibility to interact (ask questions) to the speakers.
