Natural Climate Solutions for Canada: New Science Led by Nature United Shows Nature’s Potential to Tackle Climate Change

Event Details

A landmark Canadian study led by Nature United reveals that nature can deliver immediate impact in Canada’s fight to tackle the climate crisis. Protecting, managing and restoring nature is vital to Canada’s 2030 targets and reaching net-zero by 2050.

Natural Climate Solutions for Canada is a peer-reviewed study involving 38 leading experts from academia, governments and non-governmental organizations in Canada and the U.S. The study examines four land types (agricultural lands, forests, wetlands, grasslands) and 24 pathways that, undertaken in the next decade, have the potential to cut Canada’s emissions.

Amanda Reed will provide the core presentation. This will be followed by contributions from Maria Strack and Susan Cook-Patton and their remarks will focus on the main takeaways from their research and specific examples (i.e. pathways) they studied. Ronnie Drever will join the subsequent question and answer period.

Nature United is a Canadian conservation organization with a proven record of creating solutions for people and nature. Building on three decades of conservation in Canada, Nature United has developed effective, long-term partnerships with Indigenous communities, governments and industry to advance large-scale conservation that benefits nature and people.

The Sustainability Network Tech For Nature Showcase highlights ENGO initiatives funded by RBC that leverage technology and innovation to solve pressing environmental challenges. We thank RBC for their sponsorship of this series.
