Description

Abstract: The protection or restoration of natural ecosystems can contribute to climate mitigation through carbon storage and sequestration. However, there are various social, economic, cultural and political considerations in every society that could constrain the implementation of these nature-based solutions and limit their climate mitigation potential. I will briefly discuss some examples of these promises and pitfalls of nature-based climate solutions.
