Natural Hazards & Nature-based Solutions Platform
04/05/18 Filed in: Announcement
A new website has been launched to provide support and resources for those working around nature-based solutions and disaster risk reduction. The Natural Hazards – Nature-based Solutions
platform is a hub for projects, investments, guidance and studies making use of nature to reduce the risks associated with natural hazards. Its objective is to host and facilitate the exchange of knowledge, experiences and lessons learned from a range of stakeholders, to provide guidance on the planning and implementation of nature-based solutions, and to champion these solutions in the arenas of policy-making and investment for disaster risk reduction.
The guidance was developed and agreed upon by a group of leading international institutions who are engaged in designing, planning, financing and/or implementing nature-based solutions around the world. The platform was developed by the World Bank, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), and Deltares.
Visitors are encouraged to contribute
their nature-based project and experiences to Natural Hazards – Nature-based Solutions database, and join a growing community of practitioners, scientists and donors who are using nature-based approaches to reduce disaster risk. The platform welcomes all projects using nature-based approaches to reduce disaster risk that you and/or your organization are involved in, whether as practitioners, contractors, scientists or donors.
