This webinar from World Water Week 2020 fostered dialogue around the central role that Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) play in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, highlighting the social, economic and environmental co-benefits. The contributions of NBS to improve water security and create resilience in a future scenario of water scarcity were discussed. The objective of the session was to enable dialogue around the central role that NBS plays in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, highlighting the social, economic and environmental co-benefits. The aim of this session was to demonstrate how NBS can contribute to improve water security and create resilience in a future scenario of water scarcity due to the growing demand for water that will occur, especially in countries with developing or emerging economies. It is vital that the private sector prepare now to cope with the intensified impacts in the global water cycle due to climate change.
