Webinar: Nature-based Solutions in the NDCs, July 2nd

 

The webinar ‘Nature-based solutions in the NDCs: Planning to Implementation’ will be held on Thursday, July 2, 2020 9.00 am EDT

It is hosted by the NDC-Partnership and will talk about nature-based solutions (NBS) as powerful resource for addressing the climate crisis. The challenges, best practices and resources presented in this webinar will help practitioners to successfully integrate NBS into NDCs.

What to expect?

This webinar is designed to help practitioners harmonize the expansion of nature-based solutions with national climate efforts. NBS offer a wide range of climate benefits, including capturing and storing CO2 emissions. NBS can account for more than 30 percent of the greenhouse gas reductions required by the Paris Agreement by 2030, and simultaneously secure food and water resources. The multiple benefits promised by NBS can foster resilience and help to protect biodiversity and ecosystems services.

NBS are already a common feature of national climate plans for most countries (130 of 196). They make up about 5 percent of all NDC implementation requests received by the NDC Partnership. However, there is still a need to encourage countries to expand the scope and nature of nature-based solutions in national climate plans to ensure detailed, and measurable outcomes.

This webinar will feature a discussion that directly addresses these challenges. The discussion will provide country insights from Jordan and Grenada, as well as, perspectives and recommendations from several implementing partners.

This webinar will highlight:

  • trends from the NDC Partnership’s nature-based solutions work
  • challenges and best practices from countries and implementing partners
  • guidance, recommendations, and resources from partners

Featuring speakers from:

  • Jordan, Grenada, World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
  • Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)
