Streamlining the complexities of deploying 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.
Facilitating project design, due diligence, finance and certification – all key to unlocking supply at scale.
We offer expert support across all key areas of a high quality project. Build a robust investment case and meet the highest 3rd party standards for certification.
