Presentation

In many parts of the world, municipalities have to respond to growing challenges related to climate change: climate variability hinders the economic development of various sectors, extreme events destroy infrastructure and cause social disasters, and 'slow onsets' require planning measures with a long-term vision

 "Nature-based Solutions" may offer new opportunities to meet these challenges. Through a panel that involves the discussion with representatives of civil society, municipalities and NGOs, we seek to better understand the challenges of including EbA measures in municipal planning, and also the new benefits and opportunities that these measures generate for current and future generations.
