You’re Invited: Mainstreaming Nature-based Solutions for Water & Climate Security

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to invite you to Part 2 in our webinar series on effective, scalable implementation of nature-based solutions:  

Part 2: Mainstreaming Nature-based Solutions for Water & Climate Security: The Next Decade


Thursday, March 10
11:00am – 12:15pm PET/ET (Zoom)


As we learned from our panel discussion in Part 1 of this series, Opening the Tap: Peru's “Silent Revolution” on Nature-based Solutions, there is great opportunity to learn from the Peru model for transforming its infrastructure sector to publicly invest in nature-based solutions. Now, Peru is poised for a new wave of investment, at significantly larger scale. Once again, the country will be charting a new path that will be of interest to countries around the world: Once the groundwork for natural infrastructure investments has been laid, how do you scale to the second order of magnitude? 

In this second webinar, we’ll discuss what the next decade will look like for natural infrastructure for Peru and for other countries in the region and around the world that seek to harness nature-based solutions for water and climate security. We’ll discuss new roles for national and local government, international cooperation agencies, philanthropic foundations, and communities. We’ll explore how Peru’s models can be adapted to other places, and look at how growing priorities, such as climate adaptation and green recovery plans, can be incorporated into infrastructure planning and water governance.
