An interactive bibliography of publications about nature-based solutions
“Healthy ecosystems underpin healthy, resilient nations and communities, and we cannot achieve our Sustainable Development Goals without safeguarding nature” Achim Steiner, UNDP (2017)
Land-based conservation and restoration can provide over 30% of the cost-effective climate change mitigation needed between now and 2030
Most nations agree that nature is a major ally in the fight against climate change but policy ambition must be matched by robust targets
Natural coastal wetlands prevented $625M property damage during Hurricane Sandy in NE USA in 2012
Loss of coral reefs would double damage from coastal flooding and triple destruction by storms
Intact diverse ecosystems offer a powerful line of defence against climate change
