The changing climate we are experiencing today is caused mainly through the release of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide. Given that forests, wetlands and other natural lands can absorb and store large amounts of carbon, land conservation and stewardship are essential for climate change mitigation. The session is designed to give you an understanding of the concepts, science and tools needed to incorporate carbon and climate adaptation principles into your forest protection and management and will introduce a framework for considering and assessing carbon sequestration and storage at the landscape and project scale. We will also explore the challenges and opportunities when communicating the benefits of climate-informed land conservation practices. This session will require active participation and attendees will need a laptop with a wireless connection.
