Benefit Accounting of Nature-Based Solutions for Watersheds Landscape Assessment
United Nations (UN), Pacific Institute, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Danone S.A. | August 3rd, 2020
This landscape assessment is the outcome of Phase 1 of a tri-phased project and was designed to inform the path forward for engaging the private sector to invest in nature-based solutions (NBS). A literature review was undertaken to understand the contemporary thinking around NBS and identify key opportunities and challenges faced by decision makers, practitioners and researchers. Interviews conducted with representatives of businesses, civil society and academia who have already implemented NBS projects or are looking to do so yielded qualitative responses to complement or contrast with the findings from the literature review.
