Nature-based solutions can, if well designed and robustly implemented, deliver multiple benefits for climate change mitigation and adaptation, enhance biodiversity, promote human wellbeing and support the economic recovery.
This briefing explores the benefits of nature-based solutions; the best practice guidelines necessary for these benefits to materialise; the role of nature-based solutions for climate mitigation and adaptation in the UK; and the opportunity for COP26 to promote the global adoption of good practice principles for nature-based solutions.
