The World Bank has just released a new approach paper, Unlocking Nature-Smart Development, framing the management of biodiversity and ecosystem services as a development issue, from both the risk and opportunity perspectives.
It proposes six global response areas aimed at rebalancing nature and economic prosperity:
● Engage economic and financial decision makers
● Integrate nature and nature-based solutions into sector investments
● Enhance local benefits of conserving and sustainably managing nature
● Mobilize finance
● Produce metrics and decision support tools
● Leverage partnerships
