At the Paris Climate Talks, the Government of the Seychelles announced the protection of a vast swath of Indian Ocean that surrounds this island nation off the coast of East Africa. This forms part of a deal, facilitated by the Nature Conservancy and supported by the Paris Club, that restructures the country’s foreign debt. At this event, participants learned about what was required in order to make this happen, the conservation and adaptation benefits that were secured, and the potential for this model to be replicated elsewhere.

This video was produced by Peter Wood, Ph.D., and filmed/edited by Ben Crowe.
