Gregory Stone, Conservation International

Conservation International is a global organisation with conservation projects in over 30 countries. Stone describes climate change as an insult happening across the globe and views solutions such as utilising natural capital’s adaptation and resilience responses to climate change as important. He uses the analogy of using the earth’s immune system to fight off disease. Stone explains that oceans don’t have a high enough profile at COP21 and talks about the vulnerability of atoll island states to sea level rise
