SWWW 2018 Panel // Using Information Tools on Multifunctional Nature-based Solutions to Achieve SDGs

The implementation of the water- and interrelated SDGs calls for joint action by various stakeholder groups empowered by the provision of data, information and knowledge on Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) through modern easy-to-use information and communication tools. The objective of the event is to understand how information tools need to be designed to optimize and increase the use of multifunctional nature-based solutions.

This panel is part of the Stockholm World Water Week 2018.

It will address the design and implementation of online platforms which can support scientists and practitioners in their contributions to the SDGs related to Water & Sanitation, Urban Resilience, Energy, Water & Food Security. It will explore how a Nexus Approach to managing water, soil and waste contributes to achieving interrelated SDGs.

Each representing a different perspective, speakers will give a short thought statement. The panel will discuss opportunities and challenges associated with using wetlands as nature based solution for addressing pollution abatement, along with other ecological services and benefits with a focus on the design and use of information and knowledge tools designed to facilitate SDG goals and targets implementation. The audience will play a major role in this seminar. Participants are encouraged to share their views, experiences and questions during the following discussion.
