2nd Blended (Online and Face to Face) Training Course on Nature-based Solutions for Disaster and Climate Resilience
Date: 27 Feb - 17 Mar 2023
Venue: Bangkok, Thailand
Face to Face Phase: March 15-17, 2023
SHORT COURSE INTRODUCTION
With the effects of climate change becoming more evident, Nature-based Solutions (NbS) can greatly enhance resilience to disasters and climate change. Not only can they reduce exposure to hazards or act as natural buffers against them, they can also remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and promote the integrity of ecosystems, which are both likely to be critical in the achievement of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) goals.
This course will introduce the participants to NbS for DRR and CCA, including the fundamental principles and Global Standards for NbS. It will guide the participants in setting-up and implementing NbS for resilience-building through case studies from various countries across Asia and the Pacific. The output of the course will be an action plan that outlines how NbS can be implemented in DRR and CCA and how the global standards can be applied in their nature-based interventions.
