Join us at COP25: Conserving, restoring and safeguarding wetlands to achieve climate goals
After a trio of scientific reports this year on land use, the cryosphere and biodiversity, we will be contributing to the COP25 by sharing knowledge and experience on peatlands conservation, restoration and management, land use change in relation to permafrost and ways of ‘building with nature’, in collaboration with our networks and partners. Read on to find out more. Please come and join us if you are in Madrid.
Valuing Wetlands in climate and biodiversity agendas: recommendations for climate pledges
With the UNFCCC COP25 just around the corner, leaders across the world are assessing and finalising the climate strategies that will be implemented in 2020. Re-wetting degraded peatlands, preserving permafrost areas and restoring mangroves as green infrastructure are vital to not only for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but to developing resilience against climate change.
Building with Nature: scaling solutions to flood threats across Asia
With the impacts of climate change growing, Asia’s coastal areas are increasingly vulnerable to disasters such as floods, typhoons and tsunamis. In the run up to the UNFCCC COP25 in Madrid next week, Wetlands International Associate Expert, Fred Pearce, explores how ecosystem restoration, through a process of ‘building with nature’, is helping Indonesia become a pioneer in coastal resilience.
