Event Details:

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.

Speakers:

  • Chris Field: Director Woods Institute for the Environment; Professor, School of Humanities and Sciences, Stanford University
  • Rebecca Chaplin: Senior Research Scientist, Natural Capital Project, Stanford University
  • Asmeret Asefaw Berhe: Associate Professor, University of California, Merced
  • Bronson Griscom: Senior Director, Natural Climate Solutions, Conservation International
