Our marine and terrestrial biodiversity programs have two main objectives and centers of influence; they are conservation and restoration. Under both objectives, we develop climate action directly and indirectly as we serve to reduce climate change and its impact thus contributing to mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
Our marine restoration program contributes to improving the capacity and functionality of the marine ecosystems; this directly adds to the efficiency of seas and oceans to absorb CO2 and mitigate climate change. Marine conservation help protect vulnerable and significant marine sites; protection improves their functionality and enhance their role as climate sinks.
Similarly, conservation and restoration of terrestrial ecosystems increases sequestration of CO2 and improves resilience to climate change.
