Panel: Nature-Based Solutions for the Water Sector in LAC

Tuesday, April 6, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Soluciones Basadas en la Naturaleza en el Sector Agua en América Latina y el Caribe

Climate change is threatening water resources in both urban and rural areas in the LATAM region. This threat to water resources and its implications for public health has become more clear and pressing in the current global pandemic. We know that future solutions will have to include nature-based solutions (NBS) for communities and cities to sustainably adapt to changing water conditions. What is currently being done in LATAM to push these forward?

The panel will be in Spanish, with simultaneous translation to English.
