COP 28 Side Event | Partnering for Climate: Supporting Nature-based Climate Solutions for Adaptation
This event, hosted jointly by Global Affairs Canada and IISD, will highlight Canada’s leadership on climate finance through the Partnering for Climate initiative and include interactive exchanges between Partnering for Climate project hosts and an international audience. It will feature IISD-led projects, such as the Climate Adaptation and Protected Areas (CAPA) Initiative and the Scaling Urban Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Adaptation in sub-Saharan Africa (SUNCASA) initiative, as well as Plan International Canada’s project: Conservation and Sustainable Management of Coastal and Marine Ecosystems (COSME) in Kenya. This event seeks to demonstrate the implementation potential and stories of nature-based solutions for adaptation in Canada, sub-Saharan Africa, and Small Island Developing States, as well as Canada’s role in accelerating global climate action.
