Working Group 2. Biosphere Interactions

Working group 2 aims to specify the extent and integrity of biomes and ecosystems needed to stay within a safe and just corridor. The group considers how changes in living nature — the biosphere as a whole, individual ecosystems, and biodiversity — affect Earth system processes at biome scales, and nature’s contributions to people at finer scales. These parameters will guide the development of clear targets for a safe and just biosphere.
