The Final Intergovernmental Consultations on Nature-based Solutions will feature both regional and global consultations on Nature-based Solutions (NbS). These final consultations follow five Regional Consultations (Africa, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), and Western Europe and Other States (WEOG)) and the First Global Consultation.
In February 2022, the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) adopted a resolution on ‘Nature-based solutions for supporting sustainable development’. Through this resolution, UNEA requested the UNEP Executive Director to convene intergovernmental consultations on NbS. UNEA President Leila Benali appointed two Co-Chairs of the intergovernmental consultations on NbS – Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Costa Rica to UNEP and the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), Giovanna Valverde Stark, and Senior Forest Officer, Ministry of Environment of Nigeria, and Nigerian national focal point to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), Sikeade Egbuwalo.
UNEP will host the Consultation.
