Nature-based solutions in action lessons from the frontline

Nature-based Solutions (NbS) have the power to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and poverty in an integrated way, so their appeal to governments, businesses and civil society groups is understandable. If done well, Nature-based solutions could hold the key to cost-effective ways of protecting, sustainably managing, and restoring ecosystems, while at the same time addressing societal challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and poverty and inequality. However, they have to be good for people – particularly those who are marginalised and indigenous people and local communities. This report highlights successful NbS across a wide range of contexts.
