UNFCCC COP28 Side Event: Making NbS approaches viable for multilateral/private sector financing of infrastructure projects

02/12/2023 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm +04

This panel will discuss and debate how to accelerate the implementation of nature-based solutions (NbS), including green-gray infrastructure at scale-designing and building the next generation of resilient infrastructure to reduce flood risk for up to 680 million people in the coastal zone providing biodiversity and adaptation benefits.
NbS implementation is beginning to gain momentum as practitioners work to overcome some of the major barriers to wide-scale implementation. However, this approach designed for climate resilience and disaster risk reduction is generally not perceived as bankable or deployable at scale. This panel will discuss and debate several foundational projects as well as how to accelerate the implementation of NbS through innovative approaches.
