Biodiversity is declining globally at unprecedented rates, eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide (IPBES 2019). At the same time, the overwhelming scientific consensus is that humanity is facing a climate emergency (Ripple et al. 2020), with anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions altering climatic conditions, sea levels and the pH of surface ocean waters. Global strategies to halt these dual crises are often formulated separately within two international conventions (the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)), yet biodiversity loss and climate change are interdependent issues (Garcia et al. 2018; Pires et al. 2018).
