Please summarise your areas of climate-change expertise (in terms of subjects and geographical areas)
The Nature Conservancy is the largest environmental non-profit in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Working on-the-ground in more than 30 countries, The Nature Conservancy is in the unique position to translate conservation success into international and national climate policy solutions. Our delegation in Copenhagen will include climate experts from the US, Indonesia, China, Brazil and Europe, some of whom have been covering the UN climate talks since the very first COP 15 years ago. We have forest carbon projects in six countries on more than 1.5 million acres of land including in Indonesia, Brazil, Bolivia and the United States. The Conservancy also is the only non-governmental organization to sit on the governing panel of the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility, which is helping create the tools and incentives developing countries need to protect their forests and combat climate change.
The Conservancy is also actively developing and testing adaptation strategies to help natural and human communities overcome the devastating impacts of climate change. Along with our field projects, The Nature Conservancy is working with US and international policy leaders to ensure that ecosystem-based adaptation and forest carbon are key parts of any climate change solution. We are working on a variety of policy issues connected to the UN negotiations and have particular expertise on REDD and ecosystem-based adaptation.

I'm the Director of Climate Media Relations for The Nature Conservancy. I work closely with both our US and our International climate policy experts and field scientists. I am based in the US, but can connect reporters to our experts around the world. I will be attending the Copenhagen negotiations from Dec. 7 to 18 as part of our delegation that will be focusing on REDD, adaptation and finance issues. Please do not hesitate to contact me and I can put you in touch with our various climate experts who will be happy to give you insight and updates on the Copenhagen negotiations, how US legislative action is impacting those negotiations and what we expect to happen next year.
