Pioneering Nature-based Solutions for Resilient Infrastructure

The hybrid session “Pioneering Nature-based Solutions for Resilient Infrastructure” held at Resilience Hub at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP26) on 5 November 2021 focused on the challenges and key actions at different stages of a project life cycle for nature-based solutions (NbS) in the context of resilient infrastructure. The session discussed key learnings from case studies around the world and how recommended actions have been incorporated into NbS projects in complementarity with other grey infrastructure initiatives. It also marked the release of the white paper on ‘Governance of Infrastructure for Resilience’, developed by Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) and Resilience Shift, in partnership with Arup.
