Presentations addressing barriers and successes during the implementation process are welcome. What do you need to know before, during and after the implementation of a project? What is the role of public private partnerships? What lessons have we learned and what challenges remain?
Assessment of Success
How do we define the success of a nature-based coastal resilience project? Over what timescale? With what metrics? How are social and ecosystem co-benefits valued? All presentations addressing these critical issues of assessing the success of a Nature Based Approach are welcome.
Nature-Based Approaches & Social Equity
Nature-based approaches can invite gentrification, while at the same time creating positive environmental benefits. How do we get it right? What are ways to engage the community in regard to these complex, interactive topics? How to make sure the socio-economic benefits flow to the community?
