Climate Action Enhancement Package supporting enhancement of NbS in NDCs
Wednesday 29 Apr 2020
The Climate Action Enhancement Package (CAEP) is providing targeted support to 65 countries on improving their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement. This article shows in what ways the CAEP has been helping with nature-based solutions in NDCs. The most common type of help was with defining or updating targets (28%), followed by developing financial regulations and instruments. This provides a hint that updates of NDCs will include more comprehensive plans relating to NbS. In order for NbS to achieve their full potential, we need quantitative targets informed by the best possible evidence from science and practice.
