Lessons learnt from REDD+ for NBS and NDCs

Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) could provide a cost-effective solution to climate mitigation, adaptation, and slowing biodiversity loss. They are increasingly viewed as an effective strategy to address climate change and biodiversity loss, two of the biggest global challenges of this century. Drawing from REDD+ experience and lessons learned, this talk will highlight some of the considerations and potential solutions to enhance mitigation action through NBS in future iterations of NDCs. Seven key considerations will be presented to consider addressing when evaluating how to enhance the NDCs through NBS. For each consideration, experience from REDD+ implementation and how this could be relevant to a broader suite of NBS options will be shared.
