As part of the WaterPavillion and hosted on Pathable, the session will feature discussions between the public, private and NGO sectors centered on the challenges and opportunities for climate mitigation and adaptation that exist in approaches like nature-based solutions and resilience thinking. There are unambiguous proof points that can help build the business case for sustainable mitigation and adaptation through nature-based solutions. Nature-based solutions offer an investment opportunity to build resilience and tackle water and climate challenges while ensuring sustainable, long-term return on investment for stakeholders in all sectors. A policy shift is needed to incentivize, promote, and mainstream water security and climate mitigation and adaptation, while addressing biodiversity loss and socio-economic demands.
