Mainstreaming Nature-Based Solutions: Sustainable Development Goals

This report argues that nature-based solutions can contribute to achieving the SDGs because they often address public interest objectives and sustainability dimensions at the same time. This makes nature-based solutions effective instruments for addressing sustainability-related challenges in an integrated manner. Nature-based solutions simultaneously require and enable the collaboration of various actors in society and – given their cross-cutting nature – the collaboration of different administrative departments. Finally, nature-based solutions can support an indicator-driven policy approach.
