Typology of Nature-based Solutions for Climate Adaptation 

Conservation International and the Nature-based Solutions Initiative worked together to prepare a typology of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) for climate adaptation that identifies specific NbS (e.g., restoration with native species, assisted migration of plant species, fire management) implemented in specific ecosystems shown to be effective in reducing specific climate impacts (e.g., freshwater flooding, coastal erosion, drought). The information, organized in a matrix, can help practitioners, policymakers, NGOs, governmental organizations and researchers to implement specific NbS that are likely to deliver desirable climate adaptation outcomes. Access the matrix, and methodology used to prepare it.
