In this event, members from the BEI Nature-based Solutions (NbS) subgroup will compose part of an expert panel providing a detailed overview of what NbS is and its practical application in the fight against climate change.
As part of the British Expertise International climate series, we are delighted to announce a three-part virtual webinar series, this series aims to showcase and deep dive into BEI and UK expertise into three strategically important climate related fields. When COP26 gets underway, we will be hosting themed events on Nature-based Solutions, the Built Environment and Extreme Weather, the current subgroups of our Climate Change Working Group. In each of these three sessions, experts from across the BEI membership and the wider UK climate related sectors will showcase their latest work and insights on the topic. Members will be presented with a comprehensive overview of each subject and understand how UK plc can continue to advance and lead the way in these critical areas.
In this event, members from the BEI Nature-based Solutions (NbS) subgroup will compose part of an expert panel providing a detailed overview of what NbS is and its practical application in the fight against climate change. In addition, we will also other have other expert panellists demonstrating real world examples of NbS solutions at work, providing members with key insights about how they can incorporate these innovative solutions into their own work. Whilst the concept of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) has only just begun to enter the mainstream debate around climate change solutions. Nevertheless, it has emerged as one of the leading approaches when considering how to mitigate and prevent the impacts of increased global temperatures. In framing NbS and considering its applications, it is useful to think of it as an umbrella concept that covers ecosystem-related approaches, all of which address societal challenges.
Although NbS has now entered the mainstream, there are still different definitions of what the concept means, as a growing number of organisations apply the approach in response to: Ecosystem restoration, Issue-specific ecosystem-related (e.g. adaptation and mitigation), Infrastructure-related, Ecosystem-based management and protection. Our expert panellists will look to provider depth and clarity on the subject, and explore how organisations can begin introducing some these approaches into their own framework when designing solutions.
Join us as we look to deep dive into these key thematic areas, hear from members of the Climate Change Working Group, experts in the relevant fields and have your questions answered in a moderated Q&A
