Natural Climate Solutions
In the next decade, nature can provide a third of the solution to climate change.
We need #NatureNow.

Voluntary carbon markets and integrity: what really happened at COP26?
Since their inception, voluntary carbon markets have been the subject of widely differing opinions. Some proponents believe they are the silver bullet for addressing climate change in the short term, whilst some activists believe they have no value and actually perpetuate the problems.
Mainstreaming nature as a climate solution
Media coverage of natural climate solutions (NCS), and NBS more broadly, has significantly increased over the past two years. Insights from our weekly newsletter showcase how nature has moved from being ‘the forgotten solution’ to being placed at the heart of the climate conversations.
2021: a Nature Positive year
Large commitments to end deforestation, better schemes to protect Indigenous Peoples’ rights, and a turning point on the negotiations on carbon markets. 2021 has seen nature no longer as the forgotten solution but actually at the heart of a low carbon, nature-positive and climate-resilient future.
Too hot to work: temperature rise linked to deforestation likely to affect working conditions in the Tropics
High-profile pledges made at the recent UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow haven’t come a moment too soon for communities on the front lines of forest loss, new study finds

“It is very important to not only be carbon neutral, but also to be nature positive. We must act now.”
“I think we’ve run out of time. This is the decadal challenge, and those of us alive can begin to change the course and put us back on the right track.”
“My government has pledged to protect this biodiversity—to protect our flora and fauna communities. And for that we have taken up the challenge to plant ten billion trees.”
“We must together think but also act differently. As conserving nature is not just a moral issue, but it is also a question of survival.”
“In the fight against climate change, in our struggle to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, there is simply no viable pathway without protecting the world’s forests.”
“We know that our only chance to have a possibility of liveable environment with functioning life support systems on a stable planet is if we become stewards of both nature and climate, as an integrated whole.”
“While the loss of nature might often seem far away, it connects all of us, causing disruption, devastation and hardship.”
