Natural climate solutions (NCS) have become a buzzword, with many governments and all levels of organizations seeking to implement them. NCS is a relatively simple concept that nature is good for our climate. By absorbing and storing carbon from the atmosphere, forests and other high-carbon ecosystems can help forestall climate change. Therefore, a Natural Climate Solution is any action that conserves, restores, or improves the use or management of these ecosystems while increasing carbon storage and/or avoiding greenhouse gas emissions can be considered a “natural” climate solution.

Developing green infrastructure, including natural climate solutions, has become a focal point for government policy and spending to boost economies for post-pandemic recovery. However, infrastructure that balances economic needs and natural capital in the face of a changing climate requires an integrated approach to ensure benefits for ecosystem services and human well-being.

Join us in learning how integrated landscape management (ILM) can provide a framework for balancing different priorities and how green infrastructure and natural climate solutions play a vital role in development pathways. Practitioners working on green infrastructure, natural climate solutions, NCS finance, and ILM will share their experiences, lessons learned, and future outlook.
