NbS Management Hub

The NbS Management Hub helps drive efforts to scale up Nature-based Solutions and supports the uptake of the IUCN Global Standard for Nature-based Solutions, its mainstreaming in national policies and strategic plans as well as in financial decision-making.  

The Hub provides support to IUCN’s members, its network of partners, and the global community, ensuring the effective implementation of Nature-based Solutions (NbS).  

The Hub also advises countries to deliver their commitments to conserve, restore, and sustainably manage their terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems, their biodiversity, as well as the products and services they provide for human well-being and prosperity.
