In early November of 2009, WWF convened the 4th annual Kathryn Fuller Science for Nature Symposium. This year’s event, titled “Securing Water for Nature and People in a Changing Climate,” provided a state-of-the-science review of climate impacts on freshwater systems, challenges to freshwater ecosystem conservation, the role of adaptation in water management, and provided a platform for the development of an adaptation based “conservation agenda.”
Jim Jarvie of Mercy Corps spoke powerfully about how climate change is exacerbating humanitarian crises in poor, urban centers and how current trends are necessitating a new partnership between humanitarian and environmental organizations. Watch him deliver some of his key messages here.
