Solving the problem of environmental threats and a dwindling biodiversity has been on the international agenda for some decades now. The formulation of environmental questions, however, is changing slowly People have made unprecedented changes to ecosystems in recent decades to meet growing demand for food, fresh water, fibre and energy. The quality of life for billions of people has improved, but these changes have weakened nature's ability to deliver key services. In this paper, I have tried to analyze how the changes to natural ecosystems influence both climate change and people's ability to cope with some of its damaging impacts. And in their turn climate change, as well as people's responses to it, affect biodiversity.
