CITIES TALK NATURE: Business Insights: Policy mixes for Nature-based Solutions in the private sector

Thursday, 4 April 2024 - 16:00 to 17:30 (Europe/Brussels)

Join us on 4 April 2024, as part of the CITIES TALK NATURE: Business Insights series, as we discuss public policy instruments for private Nature-based Solutions businesses in six cities across Europe and Latin America.

In this webinar, we will answer the following questions:

  • Why do Nature-based Solutions in the private sector require a policy mix ?
  • Why are market-based instruments not always appropriate incentives for Nature-based Solutions?
  • In what ways is good governance a precondition for Nature-based Solutions markets?
  • What policy barriers to Nature-based Solutions should be removed before adding new instruments to the policy mix?
  • What future research is needed on policy mix design in secondary cities with ‘thin’ Nature-based Solutions markets?

Joining us will be: 

  • David Barton - Senior Research Scientist, Economics of Ecosystem Services, Norwegian Institute for Nature Research (NINA).
