Protected Areas, Natural Solutions to Climate Change ( NASCC)
The Latin American Network for Protected Area Systems Red Parques and WWF Living Amazon Initiative are leading a regional effort to strengthen Amazon Protected Area Systems and include the role of Protected Areas in climate change strategies and development plans through the project ‘Protected Areas: Natural Solution to Climate Change NASCC’ funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety BMUB as part Implementation of the Amazon Conservation Vision.
Amazon Protected Areas are key in helping communities and nature adapt to a changing climate. They build resilience to climate change globally, mitigate the impacts of climate events, ensure provision of ecosystem services and protect biodiversity. Protected Areas should be included in climate change strategies and development plans of the Amazon countries in order to facilitate climate-resilient development and promote a safer climate future.
