1/6 Our 🌎 is heating and losing crucial carbon sinks. (Look at the #Amazon!)

🌳Tackling climate change means decarbonizing the economy but also recarbonizing our ecosystems
🦥I'm looking at the role of mammals in this task

But wait, mammals absorb CO2?⬇️

2/6 Well no *but* they mediate carbon flux:

Grazing by🦌🦘can stimulate🌿growth (more CO2 absorbed). Too much grazing does the opposite!

🐺🦁 influence plant growth by keeping 🦌 in check.
Meanwhile🐰 can ⬆️ soil carbon by digging. So much going on!

3/6 Mammal functions are so complex #climate scientists are ignoring them in #carbonbudget relying on 🛰️ images of 🌍vegetation.

But their role matters: by some estimates 🐺control of 🦌in North America could offset emissions of up to 20mn 🚗/year!

1/6 Social and economic #wellbeing influences how humans interact with #nature. At the @defaunation Hub @DICE_Kent we study how human wellbeing (e.g. access to healthcare, education, infrastructure) affects environmental change in Indonesia 🇮🇩 #HWBout #DICECON21
2/6 We track changes in poverty/wellbeing over space & time using Indonesia’s PODES census data - issued by @bps_statistics every 3–5 years to document demographic, economic & social characteristics of ~50,000 villages. A cool e.g. here #HWBout #DICECON21
3/6 We transformed PODES into a Multidimensional Poverty Index (#MPI) of 18 indicators & 6 dimensions, helping to explore synergies & trade-offs between different aspects of wellbeing & score overall poverty for each village #HWBout #DICECON21
