Excellent and very succuintly explained actually how local governments must implement the NbS at there level of operations. The three changes required at local, institutional and intra-institutional levels are key. Mostly only the local level change is expected but there needs to be an holistic change from bottom up. Thanks for sharing such an informative video.

Dear Tushar, thank you very much for your comment! If you are looking for any content in particular, please let me know.

Also, please let tell us about your experience in mainstreaming NBS! What do you think are the main bottle necks/challenges and opportunities the WAC and GCA can help support? I would be very interested to hear.

Kind regards, Ase
