Increasing Climate Ambition: A Guide for Including Nature in Nationally Determined Contributions

Enhanced ambition from countries is urgently needed to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. Climate action from nature, or natural climate solutions, including forests, agriculture and grasslands, and coastal wetlands, is underrepresented in existing nationally determined contributions (NDCs). To harness the potential of natural climate solutions, NDCs should integrate these important climate actions so that they may be prioritized for implementation and support.

A People-First Approach to Nature-Based Solutions: CARE-WWF alliance climate adaptation experiences

This event will focus on the urgency of identifying mutually supportive nature-based and community-based adaptation strategies for developing countries in the lead up to pivotal 2019 and 2020 events. Conservation of ecosystems is essential for both climate change mitigation and adaptation, benefiting people and nature. However, even if we reach zero net emissions by target dates, accelerating climate change will affect people and biodiversity, with disproportionate impacts on vulnerable communities in developing countries, especially women.

A Metric of Contemporary Forest Degradation

There is extensive evidence that high ecological integrity leads to higher levels of many ecosystem values important to people, and the degradation of integrity is happening worldwide. Indeed, globally, the aggregate impacts of degradation are arguably on a par with habitat conversion. However, ecological integrity is all too rarely included in policies or management decisions, partly because of a lack of practical tools to measure it.
