The issues of climate change do not exist in a vacuum, and in recent months there has been a very clear trend towards the inclusion of broader environmental issues. Highly interconnected topics such as biodiversity and natural capital are rising up the agenda, and it will be important to know about these if we are to build a holistic view of the risks from climate change.
In this webcast, WWF International will provide global insights into the issue of nature loss, how this is generating business and financial risk, and the interconnections with climate change.
- Nature loss = business risk = financial risk
- Nature loss and climate change are interrelated, and together also increase the risk of pandemic spillover
- Growing awareness of the first two points means lots of actors are moving to address these risks – how do we make sense of the resulting cacophony?
