Why nature-based solutions are crucial for climate and resilience

Hosted by Global Gender and Climate Alliance

Nature-based solutions are increasingly recognised for their contributions to climate change adaptation and mitigation, disaster risk reduction, and resilience-building.  

This session, hosted at the EU Pavilion at COP26, will present concrete, field-based experience from the European Union Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) and partners.  It will explore evidence and experiences of what nature-based solutions – notably restoration and Sustainable Integrated Land Management – bring in terms of climate, environmental, economic and social benefits, and to whom.

The session will cover:

  • nature-based solutions and why they are an important element of addressing climate change;
  • examples of what nature-based solutions can offer to communities and ecosystems, and the ways in which environmental, economic and social benefits are interdependent;
  • data and testimonies on the numerous co-benefits of using nature-based solutions, including disaster risk reduction, economic wealth, public health benefits, carbon finance and more; and,
  • realistic solutions and opportunities for national and local authorities to include nature-based solutions in their climate action.
