Webinar: Accelerating adaptation through nature-based solutions at scale
Thursday, 7 October, 2021 - 10:30 to 12:30 (Europe/Amsterdam)


This webinar addressed the need for greater effort to identify a pipeline of large-scale NbS projects that truly accelerate adaptation, and at the same time build the resilience of communities. This high-level session was moderated by Ede Jorge Ijjasz-Vasquez, Senior Advisor to the GCA, and Former Regional Director, Africa, Sustainable Development Practice Group, World Bank. The webinar explores cases from Africa (Dr. Bregje van Wesenbeeck, Deltares), Pakistan (Dr. Masood Arshad), and Mekong Delta (Henk Nieboer, Ecoshape), and how to finance these cases (Anirudh Rajashekar, Pegasys). The webinar also included a panel discussion with Vanessa Ushie, African Development Bank; Dada Bacudo, ASEAN Climate Resilience Network; and government representatives.
