Cohering Policies

Cohering Policies
The Paris Agreement was a milestone for climate advocates and policies, but all nations need to rise to the challenge and increase their climate ambitions in order to meet the agreed upon goals. The extreme weather events during the summer of 2018 and the increasing number of climate refugees indicate that today, climate change is one of the greatest threats to global security. But agreements such as the Paris Agreement give hope by showing that the world is capable of working together.

13:00 - 14:00 Climate Change, Biodiversity and Human Well-being

Biodiversity is affected by climate change, with negative consequences for human well-being, but biodiversity, through the ecosystem services it supports, also makes an important contribution to both climate-change mitigation and adaptation. However, the interconnection between climate change and biodiversity is not widely discussed from a policy and implementation perspective and it can be challenging for the private sector, the consumers and policy makers to understand.
