Streamlining the complexities of deploying nature-based solutions


What are nature-based solutions?

Approximately 1.6 billion people rely directly on the world’s forests for food, income, and livelihoods and more than half of the world’s GDP is moderately or highly dependent on nature and its services.

Nature-based solutions are actions that protect, sustainably manage, and restore natural or modified ecosystems to address societal challenges effectively and adaptively, whilst simultaneously providing human well-being and biodiversity benefits. They involve projects that enhance nature to address societal challenges through the provision of ecosystem services such as climate mitigation, air filtration, flood protection and clean water supply.

They encompass a wide range of actions, such as the protection and management of natural ecosystems, the restoration of forests, wetlands or coastal areas, or the application of ecosystem-based principles to agricultural systems. Tropical forests and peatlands are a priority for protection and restoration as they are important carbon sinks and have high levels of biodiversity.

Time is of the essence for action on nature. Climate change, deforestation and fires could cause the world’s largest rainforest – the Amazon rainforest – to dry out and turn to savannah. Scientists estimate that as much as 40% of the Amazon is close to this tipping point. This process will take decades to take effect, but the process is difficult, if not impossible, to reverse.

We leverage the carbon economy to scale nature-based solutions through distributed forestry: resforestation, restoration and agroforestry

Facilitating project design, due diligence, finance and certification – all key to unlocking supply at scale.

Valuable co-benefits

Not only do nature-based solutions help reduce carbon emissions and contribute to corporate or national net-zero commitments, they also generate co-benefits such as promoting gender equality, stronger rural livelihoods, biodiversity protection etc. For example, the local neighbouring communities of a project area can re-invest the funds generated from the sale of verified emission reductions into the development of schools, medical centres, infrastructures, etc. These investments increase the livelihoods and independence of these communities, benefitting the project in the long-term.

Most of the projects match these co-benefits with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  By investing in verified emission reductions, companies are working towards achieving SDGs 9, 11 and 13. Moreover, funds raised from offsets can support project developers to implement, roll out and invest in clean energy projects from which local communities benefit too, essentially supporting SDG 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6.
