What’s at Stake?   Climate Change

As Sir David Attenborough stated, climate change is humanity’s greatest threat in thousands of years, and it could lead to the collapse of civilisations and the extinction of “much of the natural world”.

Saving standing biodiverse forests is the most effective way to mitigate climate change.  Restoring and rewilding large areas of diminished, denuded and unprotected forests, believed to be between 200,000 to 300,000 sq kms in India alone, will help arrest this ongoing crisis. Protecting tiger forests and other biodiverse sanctuaries in Asia is the most effective carbon storage. The carbon capacity of every hectare protected in Corbett Tiger reserve in India is worth over US$220 annually.

Creating well planned, well executed conservation based rural economies, which include nature based activities, can ensure its valued and protected by rural communities, and livelihood benefits accrued by them.
