With the UN climate change meeting in Copenhagen fast approaching, the latest issue of World Conservation explores the many ways in which nature can help us tackle climate change and become more resilient to its impacts.

Leading experts explain that sustainably managing nature offers a cost-effective ‘bridging mechanism’ that can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions while the world makes the transition to a low carbon economy.

We also hear candid opinions about a range of subjects: the human rights implications of climate change; what developing nations expect from wealthier parts of the world; the dilemma faced by conservationists over renewable energy; how to achieve a green development path for India, and many more.
