Climate change Social outcomes Environmental impacts Social wellbeing Sustainable development

This document provides an overview of the current state of knowledge concerning nature-based solutions (NbS) for enhancing social and environmental outcomes. It maps the overall landscape of NbS, including the challenges which NbS can address, the policy frameworks which drive NbS approaches, and the enabling conditions which support NbS implementation. Accordingly, it aims to answer the following questions:

  • Which issues do NbS address and where?
  • Who is driving forward the NbS agenda?
  • Why are some NbS becoming more successful and emblematic than others?
  • How can the evidence base be strengthened to promote upscaling of NbS?
