Breakout 1A - Nature-based solutions: Harnessing the power of nature to strengthen the climate-resilience of infrastructure

Apr 9, 2024 | 8:45 AM - 9:45 AM


Auditorium Nature-based solutions (NbS) – whether standalone or in complement of grey engineering measures – can reduce infrastructure asset losses and extend their operational life. NbS offer flexibility and adaptability to climate change over time through the natural adaptive capacity of ecosystems, and provide a range of environmental, social, and economic co-benefits. This session will examine country experiences in using NbS for building climate-resilient infrastructure, and the enabling environment to encourage the use of NbS in infrastructure planning, design and maintenance.
