Speaker: Renton Righelato (Fellow of Linnean Society) This meeting will address the extent to which restoration of lost or damaged biologically diverse ecosystems could contribute to mitigation of climate change globally or regionally. It will discuss some current projects that aim to mitigate both climate change and loss of biodiversity, looking at the technical, social and economic aspects of implementation. Finally, it will debate priorities for conservation practitioners, for government and institutional support and for private sector action. Open to the public.
