Online NBI Thought Leadership Series: Nature-Based Solutions for Water Security
Thursday, 8 October 2020 14:00 to 16:00
In late 2019 the National Business Initiative (NBI) conducted research on the ways in which South African businesses think about and support nature-based solutions, based on interviews with a range of companies and financial institutions.
In this work we set out to understand how businesses currently engage with the natural infrastructure that underpins their water security, what would enable further company action, and what data and evidence is needed to encourage internal buy-in.
The results were fascinating and we look forward to sharing and debating the findings with you. The findings will also inform the NBI’s involvement in this field for the next 3 years, so we welcome your further guidance and inputs.
Please join us for an NBI member seminar focused on:
An introduction to nature-based solutions and the concept of ecological infrastructure;
A review of the enablers of corporate action on nature-based solutions;
An overview of current South African company efforts and approaches;
Company responses on key data and evidence needs in this field;
The latest thinking on the financing of ecological infrastructure in South Africa; and
An outline of the NBI’s future work on the Ecological Infrastructure for Water Security project.
