Understanding the dynamics of carbon and biodiversity across the world’s tropical forests and how these change with our changing climate requires global teamwork and a multidisciplinary approach.

But how can researchers and policymakers work together to monitor and develop the forests impact on slowing, or speeding up, the rate of global climate change.

Join Professor Oliver Phillips, Professor of Tropical Ecology at the University of Leeds, as he discusses with Professor Yadvinder Malhi, Professor of Ecosystem Science, the challenges and solutions of greater scientific capacity and vital on-the-ground evidence to understand how forests interact with climate change.

This talk will be live in-person and online.
