Image description coming soon
Nature-based solutions are one of the key themes of COP26.

The COP26 Universities Network has published a briefing paper on nature-based solutions, to which NbSI members contributed. The brief provides seven key messages on how to implement NbS successfully in the UK, and through UK-funded initiatives abroad; the four NbS guidelines are highlighted as crucial for NbS programmes to deliver their promised benefits. The report concludes with policy recommendations for delivering NbS for climate, biodiversity and human wellbeing within the UK, the types of economic incentives that can be used, how to monitor NbS appropriately, and how to effectively involve local stakeholders through use of a participatory approach.
