ScienceFest: Rob McDonald on Climate Change, Ecosystem Services and Cities


Climate Change, Ecosystem Services and the World's 200 Biggest Cities

Where do the world's 200 biggest cities get their water—and how will climate change affect those cities' water supplies? Learn how an international team of scientists, inside and outside TNC, has assembled to map the answers to just these questions. The effort will also seek to estimate the economic value of freshwater ecosystem services to these cities, providing information of use to TNC as we make strategic decisions about where to try to expand the water fund strategy.
