Building on the momentum from COP26 in Glasgow, where UNFCCC Parties explicitly recognized – for the first time – the “interlinked global crises of climate change and biodiversity loss, and the critical role of protecting, conserving and restoring nature and ecosystems in delivering benefits for climate adaptation and mitigation”, IUCN will continue to emphasise Nature-based Solutions as a key approach to address our urgent biodiversity and climate challenges.
