Bringing nature back to cities is critical for reducing emissions, cooling temperatures, preventing flooding and landslides as well as improving the health & 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 discuss best practices & 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.
