Climate change poses one of the single greatest threats to The Nature Conservancy's work, as the lands and waters we work to protect around the world will be exposed to rapidly changing conditions, making many of these places unable to sustain native plants and animals, or to support clean air, water and soil for people who live nearby.
Our Global Climate Change Team — a network of Conservancy scientists and specialists — provides worldwide leadership by forging high-impact partnerships, developing policy strategies and leading research, science and innovation about climate change and conservation.
By sharing knowledge of our on-the-ground work, from climate change impacts to expertise on adaptation and forest conservation solutions, we engage governments, businesses and communities to support policy action on climate change.
Reducing emissions from deforestation.
Helping people and natural areas adapt to changing climate.
