What is WWF doing?
WWF works globally on promoting nature-based solutions and prioritizing actions that benefit people, nature and climate. We develop measurable, people-centered initiatives across the world that harness nature-based solutions and emphasize the benefits of protecting and restoring nature to businesses, cities, communities and governments.
We are working to develop science-based guidance for field-based interventions, partnering with initiatives that boost them, and advocating for policy changes and the increased inclusion of nature-based solutions in countries’ climate pledges. We are calling for nature-based solutions to be part of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Global Biodiversity Framework and working to strengthen the alignment between climate and nature conventions.
We are advocating for nature-based solutions to be carefully planned, designed and implemented to ensure the rights of Indigenous peoples and local communities are respected, and that the benefits are shared fairly. As members of the international committee for the IUCN’s Global Standard of Nature-based Solutions, we encourage its use for designing, upscaling and verifying an intervention which covers the governance of nature-based solutions and safeguards for nature and people.
