Ecosystem-Based Adaptation to Climate Change
The Nature Conservancy is focused on using readily available, cost-effective natural climate solutions to tackle climate change.
We are recognized as a global leader in developing and implementing ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change and community-based climate adaptation.
With the help of climate modelling, vulnerability assessments and participatory land-use planning processes, communities can identify critical areas for conservation and employ nature-based solutions, such as restoring mangroves, to enhance their resilience, adapt to the impacts of climate change, and reduce their disaster risk.
We also focus on policy changes at the local and national level. In Manus and West New Britain, provinces of Papua New Guinea, we worked with the sub-national government and communities to establish mangrove policies that will guide communities and governments in the sustainable management of mangroves.
Natural Climate Solutions
New research from Nature Conservancy scientists and their partners shows we have vastly underestimated the potential for nature to fight climate change. Read more.
