Nature-based solutions (NbS) are actions to protect, manage, or restore natural or modified ecosystems that address societal challenges. These solutions are varied and multi-purpose, and are important tools to simultaneously benefit both people and nature. Interest in NbS is growing from both the public and private sectors, as is the desire to scale up implementation—so conversations around NbS effectiveness, execution, funding, and policies are more crucial than ever. Explore current NbS issues, discover promising practices, and hear from experts working in this field during a new webinar series: Nature-Based Solutions: Current Issues. The series is organized by the National Ecosystem Services Partnership (NESP) and the Resilience Roadmap project.

This session on cost-benefit analysis policies for evaluating nature-based solutions will be co-hosted by the Coastal Flood Resilience Project. Speakers include Jessie Ritter (National Wildlife Federation), Melissa Samet (National Wildlife Federation), Jeff Peterson (Coastal Flood Resilience Project), Sarah Murdock (The Nature Conservancy), Jordan Fischbach (Water Institute of the Gulf).

Additional details and registration information will be posted when available.
