Welcome to Week 4

Introduction to nature-based solutions

This video explores how climate adaptation solutions have been applied in various places across the globe.

In particular we share an successful example of nature-based solutions from Ethiopia. Solutions like this example from Ethiopia that are inspired and supported by nature are what we call nature-based solutions. These solutions are cost effective and provide environmental, social, and economic benefits at the same time.

Nature-based solutions are important because they improve both biodiversity and the livability for neighbouring human populations. This is why this week, we will look at the development of nature based solutions using real life examples of how they have been implemented.
