Join us on Wednesday 16 November from 2pm to 3pm for an event outlining the critical importance of nature in the fight against climate change, and the role of COP27 to drive progress in this area.

This discussion will explore the critical nexus between climate action and the restoration of the natural world – exploring the important role of nature-based solutions and protecting biodiversity in ultimately delivering a sustainable net zero future.

Looking ahead to CBD COP15, the global biodiversity summit in December, this panel of expert business and NGO speakers will focus on the role of nature from a specific climate lens at COP27 and its invaluable role in decarbonisation. The event will also consider how COP27 can help lay the foundation for further action at CBD.
