Water and Us: Charting Our Course to Success

Session 2 - The right solutions, in the right place, by the right people

Developing an understanding of what is needed to identify opportunities for nature-based or hybrid solutions and mainstream their delivery, including data, design, and monitoring.

Session 3 - Unlocking the safe: funding nature-based solutions

An end-to-end exploration of how the continued challenge of funding nature-based solutions can be overcome, with an emphasis on blended finance from public and private sources.

Session 4 - Nurturing community engagement with nature-based solutions
