The world faces two inescapable, major environmental crises: the loss of biodiversity and global climate change. This workshop will bring together researchers from C-PREE at Princeton University and the Centre for Natural Climate Solutions at the National University of Singapore (NUS) to investigate how the world might simultaneously tackle both crises via the deployment of natural climate solutions.  

Portions of this workshop will be open to the public, including most presentations of research. If you are interested in attending portions of the workshop, please RSVP here to let us know which you will attend.
