A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in NBI: the Nature-Based Infrastructure free online course from 19 September to 20 October.
The Nature-Based Infrastructure (NBI) Global Resource Center is offering a new course: nature-based infrastructure for climate adaptation and sustainable development.
The course aims to empower policy-makers, infrastructure planners and investors to understand the economic and financial performance of NBI as well as their co-benefits, in comparison with “built” or “grey” infrastructure.
The course consists of five thematic modules, namely:
Introduction to nature-based infrastructure
Infrastructure planning and NBI
Systems thinking and system dynamics models for NBI
Climate data and spatial modelling for NBI
This course will also illustrate how to make a case for investing in and maintaining NBI. With this knowledge, it is expected that policy-makers, infrastructure planners, and investors will be better equipped to make informed decisions about infrastructure investments and climate adaptation.
The 5-week live program – free of charge – will take place from 19 September to 20 October 2022, with sessions at 9 a.m. EST on Mondays and Thursdays.
