Good practices for increasing the application of NbS and ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction

The compendium, published by the UNDRR, includes 16 cases which provide compelling documentation that Nature-based Solutions offer multifaceted benefits.

Cost-efficient, effective and scalable, ecosystem-based approaches can help Governments and communities address the growing and interconnected challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, increased frequency of extreme weather and natural hazard, as well as other human-made environmental disasters. On May the 21st, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction published a compendium of good practices which complements the working paper “Increasing the Application of Ecosystem-based Approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction” (2023).

The 16 cases presented in the new report have been collected through a call for good practice cases to G20 countries and knowledge partners. The paper presents cases that provides compelling documentation that Nature-based Solutions (NbS) offer multifaceted benefits, including conservation of biodiversity, climate change mitigation and adaptation, enhanced disaster resilience, and socioeconomic development.

The cases presented provide valuable insights into the effectiveness and versatility of NbS, underscoring that working with nature is key to the successful implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and related frameworks and agendas, including the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement, and the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.
