We can no longer ignore the fact that the world's climate is becoming more unpredictable and more extreme. As water levels rise, the risk of flooding looms large. At the same time, periods of drought are becoming longer and more frequent. Yet, our most precious resource – our planet's biosphere – is not only under threat. It is also the source of many of our solutions. In the Green Climate Solutions programme, researchers and academics jointly apply their understanding of nature and natural processes to address the challenges of climate change.
