Nature-based climate solutions (NBCS) that conserve, restore, and sustainably use biodiversity and ecosystems hold promise in helping people adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Join us for two consecutive sessions aimed at helping organizations in Canada to advance gender-responsive NBCS for climate change adaptation.

Session 1: Implementing Gender-Responsive Nature-Based Climate Solutions

Join the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) for a capacity-building session on advancing gender equality through rights-based, inclusive approaches to NBCS for climate change adaptation. The session will include case study presentations and breakout group discussions with experienced practitioners.

Session 2: Nature-Based Climate Solutions and Biodiversity Community of Practice Meeting
