The CityAdapt Wednesday series is inaugurated through this first introductory webinar on the lessons learned from the CityAdapt project during the first two years of implementation in Xalapa, San Salvador and Kingston.

Marta Moneo, CityAdapt regional coordinator, presents the characteristics of the project and explains key concepts related to its main focus, nature-based solutions for adaptation to climate change.

Leyla Zelaya and Sergio Angón, national coordinators in El Salvador and Mexico respectively, relate the evolution of the project implementation, detailing the importance of identification and collaboration with key actors and participatory decision-making processes. They also illustrate the implementation of demonstration measures in cities, with the restoration of riparian forests and the installation of rainwater harvesting systems, among other examples.
