Promoting Nature-based Solutions in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework
This joint FEBA-PEDRR paper serves as input to the evolving deliberations on the post-2020 GBF under the Convention on Biological Diversity. As an umbrella term, NbS encompasses approaches of working with nature, such as ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA), ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR), and ecosystem-based mitigation (EbM). NbS as an overarching concept can be used to support communication and mainstreaming of these different subsets across international, multilateral agreements/global frameworks and their audiences. The brief provides clarity around the terminology of NbS, EbA, and Eco-DRR, and offers concrete suggestions for the inclusion of these approaches in the GBF.
