Overcoming the coupled climate and biodiversity crises and their societal impacts
Climate change and biodiversity loss are interconnected crises with severe social and ecological impacts. Pörtner et al. propose solutions such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting landscapes and seascapes, and ensuring equitable resource access. These actions are vital for ecological function and human well-being.
The European Union’s Landscapes For Our Future programme supports 22 integrated landscape management projects across 19 countries and 3 sub-regions across the Global South with solutions to context-specific land-use challenges around food and nutrition security, climate change and land/forest biodiversity.
