GPSC Webinar Series: Bringing Nature to Cities. Pathways to Integrated Urban Solutions to Climate Change and Biodiversity
Sep 16, 2021
The World Bank’s webinar series “Bringing Nature to Cities: Integrated Urban Solutions to Biodiversity Loss and Climate Change” will promote integrated urban solutions for cities to tackle biodiversity loss and climate change. Co-hosted by the Global Platform for Sustainable Cities (GPSC) and the Global Program on Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Resilience, the series of thematic events will provide an online knowledge exchange platform connecting policymakers, practitioners, and experts to further mainstream biodiversity considerations into cities and development projects.
The webinar series will be launched at the high-level event titled “Pathways to Integrated Urban Solutions to Climate Change and Biodiversity” convened on Thursday, 16 September 2021. Senior leadership will discuss opportunities and challenges in achieving an equitable, nature-positive and carbon-neutral future, and cities’ unique ability to limit biodiversity loss and global warming to 1.5°C. The session will provide an overview of different approaches, drawing insights from relevant projects and research – such as the recent report findings announced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – while considering the significance and applicability of actions for cities around the world.
