Energy, ecosystems and livelihoods: understanding linkages in the face of climate change impacts
The document begins with a short overview on the impacts of degrading eco-systems on human well-being. How current energy consumption is contributing to this degradation is also addressed. The affect of climate change on ecosystem services and the energy services they provide is then briefly examined. The document concludes with suggestions for how IUCN could bring its expertise to the energy, ecosystem, climate change nexus.
