Nature is a vital piece of the climate solution. Protecting and restoring nature could provide over 30% of the measures needed to limit global warming by 2030.
In Latin America, TNC is demonstrating the powerful role that nature can play as part of the solutions needed to cut carbon emissions and help communities prepare for and respond to impacts. Our pioneering science, pragmatic approach and legacy of collaboration are helping to translate Latin America’s climate commitments into action. We are galvanizing partnerships to meet ambitious reforestation targets. We are transforming how agricultural lands are used and managed to increase production on already cleared lands while halting deforestation. We are launching creative schemes to restore reefs and floodplains to reduce the impact from storms and rising seas on coastal communities.
This is the decade to save the planet—to restore, regenerate, repair and recover. Maximizing nature’s solutions is a triple win for climate, for biodiversity and for human development.
We must work with nature, instead of against it. We must work together.
