Rights-Based Ecosystem Approaches for a Green, Just Recovery

14 Nov 2020

 

The environment, climate change, biodiversity, health, inequality, food security – we face multiple crises. Despite increasing awareness of the interconnectedness of human and planetary well-being, deforestation and ecosystem degradation have not lost their momentum; we are losing biodiversity fast, and, with it, our ability to harness landscape solutions is rapidly diminishing.

This interactive and informative session invites the audience to learn and explore, with scientists and Indigenous peoples, how to deliver a green, just recovery: how are biodiversity and climate change linked? How can rights-based approaches protect and fully restore ecological functionality? Which policy processes and finances are most urgently needed, and where do the priority areas lie?
