Three FAO & TNC reports on NbS in agriculture: management, adoption and investment
May 6, 2021
Nature-based solutions in agriculture include agroforestry (growing trees among crops or livestock), applying mulch, and encouraging natural predators of pests.
The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) have published three reports which collectively explore the potential of NbS in agriculture to jointly address issues of food security, climate and biodiversity:
- Sustainable management and conservation of land, water and biodiversity: a literature review giving an overview of different types of NbS in agriculture, and their potential for food production, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
- The case and pathway for adoption: delves into the planning, implementation and policy of agricultural NbS, and provides a set of case studies.
- Project design for securing investment: explains the current landscape of agricultural NbS investment, and how to design projects for investment.
