Climate Strategy is helping all 50 states to take their “best next step forward on climate,” recognizing that each state offers a unique opportunity for action on this urgent issue. In New York, Hawaii , Illinois , Maryland , Minnesota and California , we are working to increase Renewable Energy Standards by 20 to 30% or more, and demonstrating that clean energy policies can be a key component of state-level economic growth.

Maintaining Healthy Forests Takes More than Planting Trees

Nature Conservancy - Science

Forest managers are researching strategies that can keep forests resilient under multiple stressors so that they can continue to provide habitat for wildlife, clean air, clean water, carbon storage, and, yes, timber far into the future. Looking at satellite images and historical aerial photos of old-growth forests for reference, researchers found that forests were made up of a mosaic of individual trees, clumps, and openings (ICO).

Nature’s Climate Solutions

Conservancy Talk

This kind of conservation work not only saves nature; it also benefits people by creating economic opportunities and reducing risk for communities threatened by climate change. Some of these opportunities can be unlocked with new financial mechanisms for private-sector investment, some with policy fixes and others will require new research. Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges facing our planet today.

When Can Sustainability Drive Business Growth?

Could A ‘Green GDP’ Transform The Middle East?

Green Prophet

GDP is probably one of the very few widely recognised abbreviated economic terms in the world. It stands for Gross Domestic Product and basically denotes the economic growth of a country. This measure is widely used to record (and compare countries on) everything from economic success, standard of living to the size of a nation’s carbon footprint.

Where Logging Reigns, Going Beyond Sharing vs Sparing

Nature Conservancy - Science

Research shows that selectively logged tropical forests can retain up to 80 to 100 percent of native flora and fauna species, if managed very carefully and logged at a low intensity. Aside from valuable timber and immense biodiversity, these forests also hold other values critical for human and economic well-being. Preliminary research suggests that forests may play a role in keeping people living in them healthy, shielding them from warmer temperatures.
