“We felt it fitting to launch the video on IBD 2020, given its close alignment with the IBD theme for 2020. Our forests, coral reefs and other ecosystems are well suited to natural conditions. By incorporating them as much as possible into our climate adaptation strategies, we can often get better results than if we apply only non-natural solutions. Also, as climate change can often impact men, women and various stakeholder groups differently, it is important to ensure that adaptation measures are tailored accordingly.”
