2012 Theme: Nature + Climate

Nature-based solutions for climate change

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) puts nature at the centre of climate change solutions. Healthy forests, wetlands and coastal areas can store substantial amounts of carbon and help people adapt to the impacts of climate change that are being felt across the world. When developed in an equitable and sustainable manner, mechanisms such as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) can reduce emissions, conserve biodiversity and enhance human well-being.
