The Kiwa Initiative presented at the French Nature Congress
The French Committee of the IUCN gathered 150 of its members and experts in Congress on the 11th and 12th of October, 2022 in the presence of the Secretary of State for Ecology, organized at the Zoo Parc de Beauval (France).
This Congress follows the climatic events of this year such as giant fires, historical droughts and heat waves, and their serious consequences on populations and nature, as well as in the current energy crisis.
On this occasion, the French Committee of IUCN renews a clear message: It is urgent to accelerate efforts to jointly protect biodiversity and climate, and avoid "maladjustment".
It is necessary to promote the resilience and diversity of ecosystems, both in the renewal of forests and in the preservation of wetlands and water resources.
The Kiwa Initiative was presented by our partner IUCN during the session dedicated to Nature-based Solutions as an example of the joint efforts of several countries to increase the resilience of the Pacific Islands to the effects of climate change.
