Freetown in focus: engaging the private sector on nature-based solutions

27.10.2021. @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

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. By collaborating with businesses, cities can unlock both expertise and finance to support the implementation of nature-based solutions while simultaneously helping businesses to achieve their corporate responsibility targets.

Join UrbanShift in a conversation between experts from C40 Cities and Freetown, Sierra Leone, on engaging businesses to implement nature-based solutions in urban environments. In this event best practices and examples of city-business collaboration on NBS will be discussed to learn about the benefits, challenges and opportunities created from private sector engagement in Freetown’s tree-planting campaign.
