Network Call: Conservation for Climate Adaptation
This conversation will bring together the Switzer Network to explore the intersection of climate change preparedness and conservation.

After five years of negotiations, 24 countries and the European Union unanimously agreed to create a marine protected area (MPA) in Antarctica’s Ross Sea, which is considered the most pristine marine ecosystem in the world. Fellow Cassandra Brooks has worked in the region on this project for years, but says the agreement comes with some important caveats.
