Webinar by the ILCN

This coming Wednesday, March 22nd, the International Land Conservation Network (ILCN) will be hosting a webinar on what the Paris Climate Agreement means for land conservation organizations. 

The Paris Climate Agreement marked a historic moment in our collective fight against climate change. Since that time, and, particularly, at the recent COP in Marrakesh, countries have been working to frame their climate change pledges.

Considering these developments, how can land conservation organizations help their countries to meet their climate goals? Will the Paris Agreement lead to new funding sources? How should an organization start thinking about integrating carbon accounting into their projects? 

Join the ILCN and carbon finance experts on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 11:00 am EST for a crash course on how land conservation organizations can engage in climate change adaption and mitigation within the framework of the Paris Climate Agreement. 

For further information on who will be involved and what topics will be covered, please take a look at the invitation. If you know you would like to attend you may also register here.
