Join the second session of the Nature-Based Solutions: Current Issues webinar series to learn about a diverse set of innovative financing strategies for nature-based solutions (NbS) projects. One of the major hurdles keeping NbS projects from scaling up is finding ways to pay for them. This session will highlight insights about various mechanisms that can be used to pay for NbS, including state and federal policies and programs, as well as finance tools. Listen in to this webinar session to hear from a panel of experts at the forefront of studying and implementing diverse funding strategies for installing NbS projects.
 
This webinar series is being hosted by the National Ecosystem Services Partnership and the Resilience Roadmap Project at the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability, and we are very pleased to have the Environmental Policy Innovation Center co-hosting this session.

 

ABOUT THE SERIES:
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.
