Why freshwater ecosystem restoration makes (economic) sense

Wednesday, 15 December 2021, 16:00

Investment in NbS creates employment opportunities in the short term and stimulate local sustainable economic development in the long term

In this webinar we will discuss key results from a report published in 2021 by Deltares in cooperation with WWF, setting the stage on the current knowledge about the economic rationale of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) in river systems, and discuss opportunities for scaling up these investments particularly in Europe.

The participation is free, open to everyone and without registration. If you would like to participate just contact us to receive the access information:
