EurAqua Webinar: Water challenges in the European Green Deal

Wetland © Anna-Stiina Heiskanen

Within the context of the European Green Deal, EurAqua is organizing a webinar with the focus on nature-based solutions to increase climate resilience to hydrological extremes and to protect, conserve and enhance EU’s natural capital.

The European Green Deal resets the Commission’s commitment to tackling climate and environmental related challenges. It is a new growth strategy that aims to transform the EU economy and society onto a sustainable path: inclusive green growth. The Green Deal also aims to protect, conserve and enhance the EU's natural capital, and protect the health and well-being of citizens from environment-related risks and impacts.

Within the context of the Green Deal, EurAqua is organizing a webinar with the focus on nature-based solutions to increase climate resilience to hydrological extremes and to protect, conserve and enhance EU’s natural capital. This webinar will provide an overview of latest insights on the water challenges and the potential contribution of nature-based solutions to the Green Deal. The webinar will also address the research and innovation challenges and demonstration cases and living labs.
