Project description : I am interested to join the call on Biodiversity and Climate Change, in particular the inter-linkages between a changing climate and the implications this may have on degrading natural landscapes. So in particular establishing solutions which may reduce the negative impacts on biodiversity, this may well include the interface between natures contributions to people and nature based solutions, and the required Policy frameworks to bring such solutions into action.
Networking opportunities : None planned at this moment but opportunities and links will become available in the near future. this will be updated as appropriate
