PARALLEL SESSION: Risk reduction through sustainable ecosystem management: science, technology and nature based solutions

The discussion will provide key information on the incorporation of nature as a solution in technical and political processes to generate more resilient territories and improve the quality of life.

The discussion space will provide a comprehensive vision of the implementation of NbS at a demonstrative level, the monitoring, systematization and generation of knowledge around the application of NbS and how these are complementary to other approaches and capacities, facilitating their inclusion in programs and development actions.

The results will provide guidelines to facilitate the integration of science and technology through NBS at all levels (plans, programs and budgets), as part of the commitment to address disaster risk reduction and increased resilience in the context of the sustainable development.

The discussion is also intended to serve as a resource for national and local capacity building by exploring the role of NBS in Comprehensive Risk Management, what funding opportunities exist for implementation, and how these local actions can be incorporated into development projects. larger.


Session objectives


  • Exchange multisectoral experiences on how NbS-related science and technology can be applied to reduce climate risks by investing in the sustainable management of protected areas, terrestrial and marine ecosystems, and cities.
  • Indicate how climate changes are interrelated with human activities with ecosystems and the main tools and approaches available in the application of NbS to reduce risks.


  • Provide technical and practical elements that guide the application of NBS and its contribution to the protection, conservation and restoration of protected areas, terrestrial, marine, natural or modified ecosystems, and sustainable cities.
  • Provide evidence of the benefits of NbS implementation in terms of increased adaptive capacity of ecosystems, investment, job creation and sustainable livelihoods for communities.
  • Evidence aspects for the articulation of these solutions at the subnational level with adaptation strategies at the national level.
  • Understand the co-benefits of NBS implementation with a landscape approach, both for the field of adaptation and mitigation to Climate Change.
