Enhancing Conservation Benefits for People and Nature in North Carolina: Introducing Two New Online Tools

Conservation organizations and land trusts in North Carolina are increasingly focused on how their work can 1) contribute to humans’ and ecosystems’ resilience and adaptation to climate change and 2) directly mitigate climate change through carbon storage and sequestration.

In response, the Conservation Trust for North Carolina and the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability at Duke University have developed two online tools to help organizations to consider a broad suite of conservation benefits in their work in North Carolina.
