Temasek Sustainability Breakfast Talk - Todd Stevens from Wildlife Conservation Society
Temasek Shophouse warmly welcomed Todd Stevens to share his perspectives on conservation and carbon offsetting, in another edition of the Temasek Sustainability Talk series. Todd is the Executive Director, Conservation Science and Solutions of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), which is one of the world's largest and longest running environmental NGOs.
He described the potential of nature based solutions in mitigating carbon dioxide levels to levels sustainable for our climate by 2030. Implementing climate adaptation and projects to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) are uphill tasks; Todd also shared the challenges faced by WCS in the organisation’s projects across landscapes, seascapes and species conservation.
