Bangladesh NbS Workshop co-hosted with ICCCAD
In mid-October, together with the International Institute for Climate Change and Development, we hosted a 2-day NbS workshop in Bangladesh as an initial step for building a community of practice. Approximately 50 stakeholders from government institutions, NGOs, universities, research organizations, think tanks, banks and businesses participated. In a series of talks and structured discussions, we shared knowledge of the current and future role of NbS in Bangladesh and developed a roadmap for increasing their implementation in the country. A core component of this roadmap is to build a nation-wide NbS community and to bring together knowledge from science and practice on the benefits of NbS for development to help inform the national 5-year economic plan.
