Nature-Based Solutions in South America: Engaging Multiple Stakeholders

Zoom
Virtual Event

Although the concept of Nature-Based Solutions is not disseminated in South America compared to other contexts, there are already some successful experiences of NBS implemented locally as a way of improving biodiversity and addressing critical issues that affect urban system functionality, mainly including basic social problems such as poor sanitation and building urban resilience to threats such as floods and landslides. This event aims to connect and provide a space for dialogue and exchange of experiences for the stakeholders involved with NBS implementation, monitoring and dissemination in South America in order to foster this agenda in the region. It is also an opportunity to discuss and showcase how Nature Based Solutions can contribute locally to the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
