Nature-based Solutions in a Changing Climate 2021
Jul 6, 2021
Location: University of Oxford
Event URL: https://www.naturebasedsolutionsoxford.org/programme/
Hosted by: Nature-based Solutions Initiative
We hope to hold the in-person Nature-based Solutions conference on 6-8 July 2021. However, we will confirm in January 2021 whether the event can go ahead on these dates or whether it will be postponed to later in the year or to 2022.
We are bringing 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. We will draw together the current state of the interdisciplinary evidence for the socioeconomic 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, we 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.
