Nature-based Solutions Framework & Toolkit

A key priority

Defra has made nature-based solutions a key priority in helping address the twin climate and biodiversity crises in protected landscapes. To support national landscapes teams and their partners in responding to the challenge, we have put together a specific nature-based solution resource. It brings together inputs from within the Climate Action Framework & Toolkit with many additional details.
