Local action on nature is essential if we are to bend the curve on nature loss. Yet isolated actions often lack the impact required to have meaningful change at scale. We must find ways to accelerate and magnify local action, and to scale up impact. This session will feature seven lightning talks on how successful local initiatives were able to scale up their initiative and create larger impact at a broader scale. This session also includes an interactive dialogue that identifies common themes, preconditions and pathways to accelerate the scaling up of local initiatives in order to tackle our planetary emergency, culminating in a collection of partner commitments to help scale up local solutions, including scaling up through policies and legal frameworks; through learning, dialogue and replication; through finance and funding; and through expansion of existing pilots, among others.
This session will take place on 29 September 2020, 1:00-2:30 PM (EDT). The event will be broadcast live on this page.
