Biodiversity loss and climate change are two interacting major risks that affect not only our ecosystems but the very survival of human beings—you and me. But human actions are also main sources of these risks. Farming, for example, produces greenhouse gases that cause rapid climate change, which in turn affects biodiversity. Fortunately, proper management of biodiversity can be an effective mitigation and adaptation measure. We just have to act NOW because climate change is already a reality.


What actions must we take? Tune in Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! on Dec. 19, 2007, Wed., 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. (Manila time), DZRH-AM radio, 666 khz in Mega Manila. Listeners can hear the answers from two biodiversity officials who just returned from the big UN Conference on Climate Change in Bali, Indonesia. The guests are Dr. Mundita Lim, director, Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau, and Rodrigo Fuentes, executive director, ASEAN Center for Biodiversity. Dr. Cora Claudio, EARTH Institute Asia president, will moderate the talakayan in conversational Tagalog-English.
