Webinar | Climate Change Action: The Role of Natural Solutions

September 9, 2020 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Online

If November's elections bring new political leaders who intend to tackle climate change, they will need to act swiftly and decisively and be prepared to implement a portfolio of research and analysis-based solutions.  Among the best available options are natural climate solutions: nature-based methods for safely capturing and storing greenhouse gases that fuel climate change. Such approaches are increasingly recognized as playing a critical role in meeting emissions targets and can garner bipartisan support.The Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment is convening a series of webinars focusing on important emissions reduction elements to be considered as part of a U.S. playbook of climate solution options. The webinars will explore deployment potential, scalability, and mitigation and/or adaptation benefits as compared to costs.On September 9, our first session Climate Change Action: The Role of Natural Solutions will address topics such as: the national and global scope of opportunities, the role of different kinds of incentives, and opportunities and risks for co-benefits to soil fertility, food security and forest health.
