To build capacity and knowledge exchange on NbS in the South-East Asia region, representatives of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, Member States (AMS) working in forestry and agriculture came together to participate in two three-day sessions of Virtual Training on Unlocking the Potential of Nature-based Solutions for Climate Action and Green Recovery.
The training was hosted by the ASEAN Secretariat and offered as part of the ASEAN Climate Resilience Network (CRN) activities. It covered the key aspects of NbS, including its mainstreaming, financing and governing, as well as its potential in the international arena. The training was run in two sessions, the first in the middle of September and the second in early October 2021. It brought together 57 participants working in agriculture and forestry from a total of 10 AMS.
