Nature-based solutions are important in fighting climate change, says Speaker Mohamed Nasheed.

The former President said this in a tweet on Friday, responding to a video from Climate Change Solutions.

In the tweet, Nasheed emphasized the importance of nature-based climate solutions such as protecting coral reefs and mangroves, planting and restoring forests, saying that nature-based solutions are as important in fighting climate change as getting rid of fossil fuels and that both must be done.

Nasheed has been a longstanding advocate for renewable energy, and had attempted to make Maldives carbon-neutral within a decade by moving to wind and solar power during his presidency.

He has also founded the Maldives Coral Institute as part of his long-term plan establish a world class institute running cutting edge scientific projects and strengthening coral reefs, to help Maldives’ corals survive climate change.
