Live-Stream: Nature-based Solutions - Launch of the IUCN Global Standard

We are seeing Nature-based Solutions communicated more and more in the news

as a powerful ally to address societal challenges, such as water security,

sustainable future. With this in mind, and appreciating that the misuse and
misunderstanding of the approach could even harm nature and people, a
global framework is required to mainstream Nature-based Solutions while
