Manager, City-Business Climate Alliance
Bringing nature back to cities is critical for reducing emissions, cooling temperatures, preventing flooding and landslides as well as improving the health and wellbeing of urban citizens. But funding nature-based solutions (NBS) can be a tricky task for cities. By collaborating with businesses, cities can unlock both expertise and finance to support the implementation of nature-based solutions while simultaneously helping businesses to achieve their corporate responsibility targets.
Join us as we kick off the UrbanShift webinar series with a conversation between experts from C40 Cities and Freetown, Sierra Leone, on engaging businesses to implement nature-based solutions in urban environments. We'll discuss best practices and examples of city-business collaboration on NBS and learn about the benefits, challenges and opportunities created from private sector engagement in Freetown’s tree-planting campaign.
