Freetown in Focus: Engaging the Private Sector on Nature-Based Solutions

Date and Time: October 27, 2021 | 9:00–10:00 Eastern Standard Time (EST) | 13:00–14:00 GMT

Bringing nature back to cities is critical for reducing emissions, cooling temperatures, preventing flooding and landslides as well as improving the health and wellbeing of urban citizens. But funding nature-based solutions (NBS) can be a tricky task for cities.

Join us as we kick off the UrbanShift webinar series with a conversation between experts from C40 Cities and Freetown, Sierra Leone, on engaging businesses to implement nature-based solutions in urban environments. We'll hear of best practices and examples of city-business collaboration on NBS and learn about the benefits, challenges and opportunities created from private sector engagement in Freetown's tree planting campaign.
