The Natural Assets KAN aims to mobilize a community of researchers and practitioners interested in achieving a scientifically-based, sustainable and fair stewardship of terrestrial, freshwater and marine natural assets underpinning human wellbeing.

The objectives of this webinar are to:

1) Give updates on the status of the Natural Assets KAN following the closing of the call for Expression of Interest (EoI);
2) Share some scoping ideas for research that emerged from the proposals we received through the EoI (synthesis document to be sent shortly);
3) Share some funding opportunities that may be of interest to this community;
4) Establish the next steps and activities within this KAN (e.g. establishment of a Development Team; potential scoping workshops etc.)

This webinar is open to all who showed interest in participating in the KAN and all members of the Future Earth community.
