Description

Nature offers many solutions to reduce the impacts of disasters and climate change, such as protecting forests on steep slopes, maintaining sand dunes along coastline and wetlands to buffer excess rainwater. In this course, find out how people around the world are building resilience to disasters and climate change impacts through Nature-based Solutions.

This course by the Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction (PEDRR) will help you understand how to apply these Nature-based Solutions that restore or protect natural or modified ecosystems and biodiversity and allow for their sustainable management. Nature-based Solutions for increasing disaster and climate resilience are relevant to everybody and each of us can take some actions – small or large in promoting them. With this in mind, the introductory module is designed to be accessible to everyone, whatever your level of experience or your background.

The course is open to everyone who would like to deepen their knowledge of the application of NbS and are targeted at specific groups, namely:

  • Practitioners: Risk reduction & climate change experts, environmental managers, NGOs, and local government.
