301. Meet the Scientists: Trouble Below the Canopy: the climate costs of unseen forest degradation: 11:30am – 12:30pm
Event time: 11:30am — 12:30pm
Location: Madison Hub North, Convene, 101 Park Avenue
Event organizer: WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society), WWF (World Wildlife Fund)
In this session, you will have an opportunity to hear two talks by leading forest and climate scientists and discuss their implications in groups.
Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the University of Queensland will present exciting new science on the value of intact forests for carbon sequestration and the impact of their continued deforestation. World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre will present new research showing an alarming decline of global forest wildlife populations and make the climate change case for why this matters, using a connected new piece of ground-breaking global analysis on the role of wildlife in forest regeneration and carbon storage.
