July 5 @ 10:00 am - July 7 @ 5:00 pm
This conference will bring together leading researchers from the social and natural sciences, engineering and economics with policymakers, civil society actors and business leaders to discuss the potential of nature-based solutions (NbS) to meet societal goals in a warming world. It will draw together the current state of the interdisciplinary evidence for the socio-economic and ecological effectiveness of NbS, and explore the social, technical, ethical, ecological, governance and financial challenges around scaling them up.
As well as highlighting avenues for further research, the conference will aim to generate guidelines on the design and implementation of NbS targeting decision-makers in business and government. Outcomes will be synthesised in policy briefs, a special issue, and made available to a wide audience through a creative outreach campaign.
