Enhancing biodiversity co-benefits from nature-based solutions

This technical report provides a set of recommendations to help plan, design, and implement nature-based solutions (NbS) for adaptation that enhances biodiversity and ecosystem integrity. This report aims to help civil society organizations and actors who are managing or otherwise supporting climate change adaptation and development projects. It responds to a critical knowledge gap in designing, operationalizing, and monitoring “biodiversity-positive” NbS. It was developed through a review of relevant literature, discussions with experts, and the development and review of case studies. A case study document will also accompany this report, providing a “deep dive” into the concepts described herein.
