Climate & Environment
Biodiversity & Ecosystems
The world is seeing increasing biodiversity deficits which are exacerbating the impacts of climate change, diminishing our ability to adapt to shifting environments. This makes biodiversity conservation a high priority, especially in communities that are most vulnerable to climate change risks.
Ecotourism is ecologically sustainable tourism which focuses on promoting natural areas that reflect a balance between the environment, culture, and perpetual biodiversity.
