Best practice guidelines

NbS can address both climate change and biodiversity loss, but only if we:

  1. Rapidly phase out use of fossil fuels;
  2. Protect, restore and connect a wide range of ecosystems across working lands and seas;
  3. Place the rights and knowledge of local communities and Indigenous Peoples front and centre of policy and practice; and,
  4. Explicitly design NbS so that they support biodiversity.

To help achieve synergy among climate change and biodiversity goals through the implementation of NbS, we support the development of evidence-based guidelines for decision makers in business and government, based on these critical factors, and we collate and showcase good practice examples of NbS projects from around the world.
