Nature-based solutions could save billions in the fight against climate change
Preserving or restoring natural infrastructure such as wetlands, forests and coastal mangroves provides significant carbon sequestration and climate risk mitigation value. These types of NBS interventions could save upwards of $248 billion per year, globally, versus human-made infrastructure. NBS provide multiple benefits, including local jobs, biodiversity, clean air and water, and social, cultural and health benefits to people; however, these benefits are often not accounted for and funding for natural infrastructure is still lacking.
