Nature-based solutions for conservation
The third episode of the webinar series will provide a platform to share case studies, experiences, and innovative practices from the Far Eastern Himalaya Landscape (FEHL), and the wider HKH and other mountain regions across the world, that focus on nature-based solutions to address socioeconomic and environmental challenges such as poverty, disaster reduction, erosion, pest infestation, pollution, and extreme weather while achieving net gains in biodiversity.

Sustainable development in the FEHL is threatened by declining ecosystem services, environmental degradation, climate change, natural disasters, poverty, food insecurity, and inadequate infrastructure and services. Integrating biodiversity conservation and local development has always been a challenge, especially in a priority conservation area like the FEHL. Nature-based solutions have the potential to protect, sustainably manage, and restore ecosystems while addressing societal challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, poverty, and inequality.  They also offer opportunities to meet critical societal needs while building long-term environmental and economic resilience.
