As part of a regional conference, we synthesised the lessons learnt from each location, and explored how to support wider, smarter application of NbS across the Mekong. 

 In particular, the conference considered issues such as:

  • What is needed to scale up application of NbS across the Mekong?
  • Are the barriers scientific, community, engineering, economic, financial, governance/policy or all of the above?
  • How can we achieve better integration of NbS, conventional and non-structural solutions?
  • How can we strengthen collaboration?

This event took place on  24–25 November 2021.
