The United Nations’ Conference of Parties, COP23, on Climate Change was held in Bonn, Germany earlier this month.  Director Christopher Dunn was part of Cornell University’s delegation of faculty and students attending the conference to present and confer with attendees about how to deal with climate change.
 
Dunn gave a presentation on community-based adaptations to climate change by the peoples of the Pamir Mountains of Central Asia and the Lakota Sioux (click here to view the presentation).  As a delegate, Dunn is also working to raise awareness of the work being done at Cornell Botanic Gardens to raise awareness about climate change and how we and visitors can mitigate its effects or adapt to its impacts.
