Abstract

In 2009, the World Summit on Food Security recognized the challenges climate change presents to food security.

Abstract

This resource manual is a call to use laws and regulations to adapt biodiversity management to the expected effects of climate change. Climate change will likely impact species and ecosystems that are already facing severe threats from invasive species, habitat degradation and fragmentation, overexploitation, and pollution. As climate change becomes more severe, gaps and weaknesses in existing legal frameworks and government policies are starting to appear.

Abstract

Climate change threatens biodiversity and its role in supporting human development around the world. It is vital that policymakers act to strengthen the resilience of ecosystems to climate change in order to respond to this threat. This paper and the accompanying Legal and Policy Tools to Adapt Biodiversity Management to Climate Change: A Resource Manual provide a menu of solutions for doing so.
