New research reveals major benefits of integrated approaches to climate and nature

Co-authored by the UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) and a number of supporting partners, the research shows that when prioritising areas for conservation, accounting for biodiversity and carbon together can secure 95 per cent of the biodiversity benefits and nearly 80 per cent of the carbon stocks that could be obtained by prioritising either value alone.

The authors highlight the fundamental interconnectedness of the climate change and biodiversity loss crises, and make the point that more integrated approaches are needed to address them. Actions that capitalise on the contributions of nature, known as nature-based solutions, and are based on inclusive decision-making that recognises the land rights of indigenous peoples and local communities, are especially crucial to acting effectively to address climate change and biodiversity loss.

“There is no climate solution without the full contribution from nature. As the UNEP-WCMC report and the work of UN-REDD show, if we are able to realise the full contribution of nature to climate change mitigation, we will have also achieved the goal of biodiversity conservation,” said Inger Andersen, Executive Director of UNEP.

The analysis identifies well-known biodiversity hotspots as the most important regions to prioritise for nature-based climate solutions – these include: Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, Mesoamerica and large parts of Mediterranean biomes and South-East Asia, as well as other hotspots on the West African Coast, Papua New Guinea and the East Australian Rainforest. Other areas important because of the vast amounts of carbon they contain include the lowlands south of the Hudson Bay, the Amazon rainforest and the Congo Basin.

learning so much and thankful for Mara's words yesterday about "mutual understanding." Feeling deeply ways that "mutual aid" is —only— possible through mutual understanding. Today has been called Thanksgiving and has represented such violence for so many. I am grateful today for all our Earth's first peoples, for increasing efforts at real community relief, and for powerful, caring friends who help hold space for transformative, nonviolent solutions.—-@maxmorris
We are in the thick of this brave new something-or-other, making daily @NotesOnRefuge.

Hey mainstream media:

We *are* those nameless faceless people you keep mentioning.

We were dying because of harmful public policies, corruption, and communities failing to care for one another.

Now we are surviving -- with plans for thriving -- and we've got some goodies for you.

We built a radio station, too.

Thank you for supporting our community broadcasting via (everybody's) @IntuitivePublicRadio.

First, there is no solution to the climate crisis that doesn’t involve ending and reversing tropical deforestation. This could offer up to a third of the solution to climate change. Yet as it is destroyed, the Amazon is moving ever-closer to a dangerous tipping point at which it could go from being a carbon sink to a vast and unchecked carbon source.

Second, the destruction of vital ecosystems like the Amazon is a major driver of the unprecedented rates of species extinction we are now seeing, with wildlife populations down by 68 per cent on average since 1970. This erodes the very foundations of our food systems and economies, and the wellbeing of communities worldwide.
