Well-managed ecosystems, such as wetlands, forests and coastal systems, act as natural infrastructure, reducing physical exposure to many hazards and increasing socio-economic resilience of people and communities by sustaining local livelihoods and providing essential natural resources such as food, water and building materials[1].

Panellists will share community -based eco-DRR examples and raise awareness on the need to scaling up investments in NBS; recognising that avoiding further degradation of  ecosystems and integrating nature into the design of infrastructure and development projects is key and cost-effective to achieve not only climate goals but also Agenda 2030, biodiversity and  DRR targets.
