IUCN Global Standard for NbS

Nature-based Solutions (NbS) are a powerful ally to address societal challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss and food security. As the world strives to emerge from the current pandemic and move towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals, it is imperative that future investments in nature reach their potential by contributing to the health and well-being of people and the planet. To this end -- and with growing interest from governments, business and civil society -- IUCN has developed the first-ever Global Standard for Nature-based Solutions to help users design, implement and verify NbS actions.
