This side event follows the session on Nature-based Solutions on the morning of the 26th of May.

  • The importance of Nature-based Solutions during response and recovery after a disaster.
  • The financing modalities available for Nature-based Solutions.
  • The importance of monitoring and reporting on ecosystem (critical green infrastructure) loss in the Sendai Framework Monitor and how this might be done under targets C and D.

    Session Objectives
