Strengthening biodiversity in climate change mitigation and adaptation projects

Today, more and more initiatives, programmes and funds develop on national and international levels that support climate change mitigation and adaptation projects. As a result the number of projects related to REDD+ or the conservation of climate relevant ecosystems increases constantly. However, in some instances, for example, where afforestation leads to the establishment of monocultures or the introduction of exogenous trees, climate projects may have negative impacts on biodiversity.

Law and governance for REDD+

In partnership with the World Resources Institute, ClientEarth, the IUCN Commission on Environmental Law, the IUCN Regional Office for Mesoamerican, the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law, the International Development Law Organization, the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law, GLOBE International and Conservational International-Peru, the IUCN Environmental Law Centre (IUCN-ELC) has invited a range of expert lawyers and organizations doing legal work related to REDD+ to participate in this event.

From Good Intentions to Action: National Implementation on Gender and Climate Change

Women’s historic disadvantages, limited access and control over decision-making, environmental and economic resources, and their restricted rights make them more vulnerable to climate change. However, this disproportionate burden of climate change on women can be countered by empowerment and recognition.

Women have important primary roles as managers of forests, land, water, and other natural resources. This position makes them powerful agents of change in formulating adaptation and mitigation measures. Women are part of the solution.
