List of Example Initiatives of Nature-Based Solutions to Raise Climate Ambition and Accelerate Action

Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) Facilitation Team (2019)

As the co-leads of the Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) Coalition for the UN Climate Action Summit, China and New Zealand have received descriptions of nearly 200 initiatives and best practices from a broad range of entities around the world. The initiatives are all opportunities for extending and intensifying NBS on land (including forests); in freshwater; in marine and coastal areas; or in agriculture, food and nutrition. Some initiatives highlight the systemic role of nature in national development. The full collection of initiatives is available online on the NBS contributions platform hosted by UN Environment, one of the facilitators of the coalition’s work.
