What are we waiting for?

Our quality of life depends on the goods and services that ecosystems provide. Forests, oceans, rivers and wetlands supply us with food, clean water, shelter, a source of income and so much more. But climate change is threatening these systems – throwing nature out of balance and making us more vulnerable.

Conserving wetlands is important for buffering people against the impacts of climate change. Mangrove in Chiapas, Mexico
