Pledge For Climate

The document highlights the role of Protected Areas to tackle climate change and pledges to support, encourage and contribute to working together.

Together for Climate, Nature and People

A pledge for Climate Change Adaptation in and around Protected Areas

We are pleased to launch here the EUROPARC “Pledge for Climate”. 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. This call for engagement aims to value the overall results of the project and to reach a wide audience of Protected Areas across Europe. So it is important for us to get the support of institutions, regional authorities and Protected Area networks across Europe.
