Session Description

Communities across the Pacific are working with many organizations to address multiple societal challenges; in particular, providing benefits for both human well-being and biodiversity in the face of anthropogenic climate impacts. Collective actions encourage the conservation, rehabilitation, and management of natural and semi-natural ecosystems; and adaptation to increasing climate change impacts. The session will highlight the adaptiveness and resilience of communities and synergies of existing efforts with global nature-based solutions to address the global climate crisis. It will also highlight the importance of the inclusion of youth in adaptation and resilience work.
