Green and NBS for Climate Change Webinar

A new Sustainability Webinar on Green and Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Change - Resilient Infrastructure will be held on 26 May 2022, 4:00 pm (CEST), coordinated by MDPI.

For the last two decades, water security and climate-resilient infrastructure have been in the spotlight as key concepts for sustainable development. Almost two-thirds of cities around the world believe that climate change will negatively affect their water resilience. Infrastructure will be affected by the physical impacts of climate variability and change, but will also play an essential role in building resilience to those impacts. Extreme events illustrate the extent of this potential exposure. Water and waste companies and administrations are under increasing pressure to invest in new ways to meet new demands due to population growth, climate change and tightening environmental standards. Many companies are concerned about business risks related to water supplies. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused profound changes in the way we live and work, and digitalization is playing an important role globally in the water and waste sectors and beyond, boosting knowledge sharing and collaboration to address these challenges.

Against the backdrop of growing global urbanization and climate change and unforeseen challenges such as those we have recently seen with the COVID-19 pandemic, this webinar focuses on innovative initiatives to address climate-resilient infrastructure and water resilience, as well as the socio-economic factors influencing vulnerability to climate change, and the wider adoption and replication of green and nature-based solutions for climate change, resilient infrastructure and water security.

The aim of this webinar is to provide evidence of the opportunities that blue-green infrastructures and ecosystems-based approaches bring towards climate-resilient infrastructure and water security. Three prominent keynote speakers will talk about the antecedents of the LIFE GREEN ADAPT PROJECT co-funded with the contribution of the LIFE Programme of the European Union under grant agreement No LIFE20 CCA/ES/00179, that will be used as a case study, the technology advances, global experiences as well as barriers and enablers to accelerate adoption and replication of innovation.

We look forward to seeing you at the webinar and participating during our panel discussion and questions and answers session.

This is aFREEwebinar. The number of participants to the live session is limited but the recording will be made available on Sciforum shortly afterwards. Registrations with academic institutional email addresses will be prioritized.

Certificates of attendance will be delivered to those who attend the live webinar.
