Saving Mother Nature: Opportunities and Limitations of Nature-based Solutions - 02 Dec 2023

Natural ecosystems can provide a massive 30% of mitigation needed by 2030 to keep global warming below 2°C. Yet, nature-based solutions have come under global scrutiny with ongoing disputes about their real impact on climate, biodiversity and communities. As the divide between the Global South and Global North widens, how can nature-based solutions step up to solve the trilemma of inequality, nature and climate change? How can policies and standards help to enhance trust and scale impact globally? How should businesses look at nature investments to fulfill their climate objectives and claims?
The opening panel will bring together global climate leaders to discuss the opportunities and limitations of nature-based solutions, and ways to unlock greater Global North-South collaboration to scale impact.
