About

Nature-based climate solutions (NBCS) hold promise in helping people adapt to the impacts of climate change. To enhance their legitimacy and effectiveness, greater emphasis must be placed on approaches that ensure social inclusion and gender equality.

Hosted by IISD, this event will feature panel presentations, an interactive Q&A, and capacity-building products developed through the Nature for Climate Adaptation Initiative, supported by Global Affairs Canada. It will examine how to generate biodiversity co-benefits through NBCS while following rights-based approaches, highlight examples from different regions, and discuss the expected outcomes for NBCS and social inclusion in the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

This event aligns with the Canadian Pavilion theme of highlighting synergies with climate action and protection of nature, and will take place on the biodiversity thematic day.
