Climate Resilience in the Natural Environment


Climate change is expected to exacerbate the threat from land use change and management practices to our natural environment. The areas of interest for climate change in the natural environment include, terrestrial, freshwater, coastal and marine environments, their species, habitats and ecosystem services.

Natural Environment Network

Climate NI has established sectoral LinkedIn groups to facilitate discussion on climate change adaptation relevant to NI. Please join our Climate Resilience in the Natural Environment group.
