Nature-based Solutions – Policy Platform

Description

This global policy platform for climate change adaptation was created with an aim to make climate change adaptation planning across the globe openly available and easy to use. The platform showcases adaptation plans in the climate pledges of all signatories of the Paris Agreement of UNFCCC. It highlights the prominence of Nature-based Solutions to climate change impacts in global policy and links pledges to the underlying science. The goal is to facilitate the global stocktake of the Paris Agreement and provide a baseline against which changes in ambition for Nature-based Solutions to climate change adaptation can be monitored and increased. The platform is managed by the Nature Based Solutions Initiative of the University of Oxford.

The 3 main pillars of the platform provides a space to:

  1. Explore policies and data in a global analysis or by country, and download factsheets, maps and data for analysis, reports and talks;
  2. Understand and compare pledges to review how nations are adapting and asses the prominence of nature-based solutions;
  3. Link science to actions by quickly assessing the latest research on the effectiveness of nature-based solutions to climate change hazards.
