Driving nature-inclusive practices with innovative approaches to enhance ecosystems and their environmental services.
We are working to revert current trends of environmental degradation by promoting nature-inclusive practices and solutions that help reconcile socio-economic prosperity with the conservation and restoration of our natural assets.
Natural ecosystems provide essential services to all communities who either directly or indirectly rely on them. This includes the permanent storage of carbon, air and water purification, attenuation of heat stress, soil and marine sediment retention, provision of natural resources, regulation of local and regional climate patterns, among many others.
Current socioeconomic models still fail to fully recognise the important role of natural assets for people, economies and the planet and to prioritise their conservation and recovery. Climate change, pollution, extractivism and other anthropogenic activities are deteriorating the world’s terrestrial and marine ecosystems at an unprecedented rate, which has led to a global climate and biodiversity crisis.
With the current rate of depletion of our natural assets and of the services they provide, the need to rethink the models that govern how our societies and economies relate to nature becomes ever more important.
BUILDING GLOBAL ALLIANCES
Bring together the right stakeholders to transfer knowledge and take action on all necessary levels from policy (nature directors, NGOs) to practice (farmers, landowners, fishers).
DESIGNING & IMPLEMENTING STRATEGIES
Develop, test and scale models and solutions (e.g., policies and governance, financing schemes, data) that prioritise the multiple values of natural assets and ecosystem services.
Raise the profile of nature-based solutions as an effective way to address the challenges we face today (eutrophication, climate change, soil degradation, water and air pollution).
REPLICATION & KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE
Drive environmentally-positive behavioural change through awareness raising and capacity building.
