NATURE-BASED SOLUTIONS - #TheAgenda
The Agenda • 9m 12s
A new report from, amongst others, the UN Environment Programme and the World Economic Forum has concluded that if we have a chance of meeting the increasingly tough climate and nature targets governments are setting, we’re going to need to increase investment sharply, and soon.
As Justin Adams, Director of Nature-based solutions at the World Economic Forum explains, we’re going to need to triple the $133b annually invested in nature-based solutions by 2030 if we have any chance of saving the planet.
