This is a valuable legacy of the work we undertook in the framework of the LIFE Natur’Adapt project. It is a call for action to ensure biodiversity and climate are taken in due consideration as parts of the same picture. The pledge originates from the work of our Task Force on Climate Change and takes into account inputs and recommendations that were received from Park managing authorities, through constructive dialogue with EU institutions, the CoE and other partners in the project. Read it now The Pledge for Climate is undersigned by Agencies for nature conservation, Protected Area Managing authorities, organisations and networks of Protected Areas from across Europe. WEBSITE - Climate Change Adaptation & Protected Areas - EUROPARC Federation. Why consider climate change in PA management practice? Field experience and research tell us that it is urgent to tackle nature and climate breakdown.

It is also widely accepted that human societies’ behaviours are exerting an overwhelming destructive force on the natural world. Although bleak, this acknowledgement holds reasons for optimism as solutions to both crises overlap. They call for better integrated land management, well implemented protection and more restoration to develop large and well-connected natural ecosystems.

Protected areas have a central role to play in tackling climate change How is the EUROPARC helping managers adapt to climate change? As an active partner of LIFE Natur’Adapt, EUROPARC is engaging its community of members into integrating climate change adaptation in their management practices.
