ACT has published a new report highlighting the opportunities and challenges of Advancing Nature-based Solutions (NbS) in Canada. The report consolidates findings from a session co-hosted by ACT, Environment and Climate Change Canada, and the Insurance Bureau of Canada, in February, 2020.

The session assembled a diversity of voices to provide input on the opportunities and challenges for accelerating the uptake of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) across Canada. Over 80 participants attended, from all levels of government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the private sector, academic researchers, and community groups.

Key Learnings from the Session:

  • Work with Indigenous People as part of “reconcili-action”
  • Focus on youth engagement and leadership
  • Develop strategic alliances between stakeholders working on the biodiversity crisis and the climate change agenda
  • Consider non-human species
  • Re-think the way NbS is implemented
  • Reconsider how impacts and success are measured
