Nature-based solutions valuing nature’s capital in investing in our long-term future will be deployed to contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation, disaster risk reduction and ensuring food security. Apart from providing effective solutions to major global challenges, nature-based solutions also deliver clear biodiversity benefits in terms of diverse, well-managed and functioning ecosystems.
What we do:
Water and Wetlands Programme
Our Water and Wetlands Programme addresses environmental concerns in regard to water resource management and the role of natural solutions in climate change adaptation and coastal ecosystems.
Pacific Mangroves Initiative
This regional partnership between IUCN, SPREP and countries of the Pacific seeks to enhance the management of mangrove ecosystems in order to improve livelihoods, sustain coastal biodiversity and explore adaptation and mitigation approaches to climate change.
