Under the impacts of climate change, natural capital can provide important adaptation benefits for communities. There is a growing demand for nature-based solutions to help communities navigate economic growth while building climate resilience. How can international commitments, finance mechanisms, and the private sector provide support? In this session, researchers and leaders from the public and private sector will showcase innovative research, policy, and finance approaches that are driving the shift to a climate-resilient future. A particular focus will be on the role of nature-based solutions for increasing water security as a critical mode of climate adaptation. Please note, this session will be offered in both Spanish and English.
