One of the most important issue that people should be concerned about is climate change. According to estimates of the UN scientists, by 2030, carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere can reach a critical level. Moreover, in fact, the temperature increase will lead to irreversible consequences. The world has already come to terms with droughts, hot weather, floods and hurricanes. In a little more than 10 years, these natural phenomena will become even more devastating. It is clear that we have to be ready that, due to the existing circumstances, the next couple of decades will be critical for saving the planet from the effects of global warming. And it is important that this information be fully conveyed to each person, regardless of his/her sphere of influence on the environment.

On 12 of March the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization published a report on Green solutions for Disaster Risk Reduction and climate change adaptation. It underline the fact that well-managed ecosystems – such as wetlands, forests, coastal systems and many others – often act as natural infrastructure, reducing physical exposure to various natural hazards and increasing socio-economic resilience of people and communities. Healthy ecosystems also provide many more services and goods, playing a role in water quality and availability, air quality, food security, and much more. Together with its partners, UNESCO advances the disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation agenda through the application of ecosystem services and nature based solutions.
