Want to explore the future of natural infrastructure across Canada’s Prairies?

Join the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) to launch Natural Infrastructure for Water Solutions (NIWS)—an exciting new initiative to scale up natural infrastructure in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.

You will hear from IISD President and CEO Richard Florizone; the Honourable Terry Duguid, M.P.; and a panel of high-level experts, who will discuss water needs on the Prairies, the growing infrastructure gap, and the unique benefits of natural infrastructure. You will learn how the case for more natural infrastructure can be backed by evidence, then adopted, financed, and built into policy.
