How can nature help us address societal challenges such as human well-being, poverty alleviation, or socio-economic development, in addition to biodiversity and broader environmental challenges?
I just learned about a FREE webinar being presented by ICLEI ahead of its 2018 World Congress tomorrow morning (April 18th) at 8:30am. You can learn more and register here. I’m hoping to attend (schedule permitting) but regardless will look to post a link to the recorded version when available.
The concept of Nature-based solutions (NbS) is not new, but I think is gaining prominence particularly as we look to take cross-sectoral approaches to complex problems. I’d be really interested in using this space to continue the conversation and explore the use of NbS here in Ontario, elsewhere across the country, and beyond. Are you working in this area? Successes? Challenges? I’ve linked an IUCN report on the subject that may be beneficial, if you haven’t yet seen it.
