Building back better with Nature-based Solutions

Nature-based solutions (NbS) can help to bring life and integrity back to damaged ecosystems to improve wildlife habitats, protect soils and watersheds, support economic resiliency, and better confront a changing climate. We will engage a number of partners including the IUCN European Office to share knowledge and ideas that inspire action on NbS in Europe and globally.

Our principal priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our speakers, moderators, exhibitors and participants, and so we have been monitoring the situation concerning the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak constantly.
