Community Adaptation to Climate Change: the Indirect Impacts on Biodiversity Across Africa – slide presentation

A major oversight of most climate change assessments to date is the inadequate consideration of indirect impacts on biodiversity. The Global Change Impacts working group is documenting how human communities are being impacted by changes in weather and climate, how they are responding, and how their responses impact biodiversity.  
 

Working across 21 sites in Africa, the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group members are interviewing rural communities to gather this data, analyze it, and develop solutions that help communities adapt to a changing climate while minimizing impacts to biodiversity. Members will present the preliminary findings from this study, as well as provide a brief overview of the next steps.
