CBD COP11: Tackling climate change and biodiversity in tandem

CBD COP11 (08/10/12) – Francis Ogwal, National Environment Management Authority, Uganda how tackling biodiversity so often also means addressing climate change.

Ogwal gives the example of sustainable wetland management boosting carbon sequestration and biodiversity at the same time.

“There are synergies between climate change and biodiversity. There is a thin line between the two issues. These things should not be dealt with in isolation,” says Ogwal.
