Event details

The impacts of climate change, and the drive to net zero, pose a number of challenges for conservation and restoration of biodiversity, both UK and globally. Land use Interventions to restore biodiversity must also improve climate outcomes, as well as providing just solutions for those who inhabit these landscapes.

The aim of this Resilient Ecosystems research theme session is to make connections between researchers from across the university working, and seeking to work at the interface between climate change, biodiversity, conservation, and land use; and introduce some open and forthcoming relevant funding opportunities.

These include the Land Use for Net Zero research programme, and forthcoming opportunities from: the Global Centre in Biodiversity for Climate; the Reversing Environmental Degradation in Africa and Asia programme; and the NERC-FCDO-ARA Nature Based solutions for equitable climate resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa opportunity.
