Biodiversität schützen und Klimawandel eindämmen

-
Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Sustainability
in englischer Sprache

Bemühungen zur Eindämmung des menschlich mitverursachten Klimawandels werden von EntscheidungsträgerInnen und WissenschaftlerInnen oftmals in einer fragmentierten anstatt integrativen Weise umgesetzt. Ähnlich verhält es sich mit Strategien zur Wiederherstellung von Biodiversität. Wie können wir ein gemeinsames Narrativ für Biodiversität und Klimaschutz im Kontext der UN-Nachhaltigkeitsziele entwickeln? Welche Instrumente können integrierte politische Strategien fördern?
