Impacts from climate change and natural disasters are escalating, creating significant social and economic challenges and intensifying concerns amongst politicians, communities and businesses around the globe about adaptation and risk reduction. Natural solutions can help us prevent and manage many of these impacts. The Nature Conservancy is undertaking a concerted, organization-wide effort to demonstrate how.
To help these strategies succeed across the globe, The Nature Conservancy hosted a two-and-a-half day “learning exchange” to bring together practitioners and experts from the US and abroad. Below are links to the presentations, organized by their order on the agenda.
