Enhancing Biodiversity Co-Benefits From Nature-Based Solutions

This technical report provides a set of recommendations to help plan, design, and implement nature-based solutions (NbS) for adaptation that enhances biodiversity and ecosystem integrity. It responds to a critical knowledge gap in designing, operationalizing, and monitoring “biodiversity-positive” NbS.

This report aims to help civil society organizations and actors who are managing or otherwise supporting climate change adaptation and development projects, including “nature positive” projects under Global Affairs Canada’s Partnering for Climate program.

The report is part of a compendium of resources developed by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) for the Nature for Climate Adaptation Initiative (NCAI), which is supported by Global Affairs Canada.
