What is Nature Positive? A global goal to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030, with a view of full recovery by 2050. With the support of over 80 organisations, the Nature Positive coalition are working to halt and reverse nature loss before it is too late.
Our vision for COP28: This year, we must turn intent into implementation. Nature’s role in reducing carbon emissions and helping us adapt and build resilience to the climate crisis must be properly recognised in Global Stocktake discussions, COP28 negotiations and implementation plans.
What are Nature-based Solutions? Nature-based Solutions are actions that protect, sustainably manage, and restore natural and modified ecosystems to address societal challenges. They can provide long-term positive benefits that flow from healthy ecosystems and target significant challenges by providing climate change mitigation, disaster risk reduction, food and water security, and improved health outcomes. Nature is in crisis, placing human and planetary health at risk. Human activities are destroying nature at a rate much faster than it can replenish itself. A continued loss of nature threatens not only over half the global GDP, but more importantly human lives and wellbeing, with the poorest and most vulnerable hit first and hardest. We cannot solve the climate crisis without looking first to Nature.
What is the Nature Positive Pavilion? Convened by Nature4Climate, the High-level Climate Champions and Global Commons Alliance, the Nature Positive pavilion is brought by a coalition of organisations committed to bringing a nature positive future to life. These include: The Nature Conservancy, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Conservation International, Environmental Defense Fund, Wildlife Conservation Society, Pew Charitable Trusts, WBCSD, Smithsonian Institution, IFAW, Global Evergreening Alliance, Business for Nature, National Audubon Society, Capitals Coalition, WWF International and Birdlife.
The Nature Pavilion at COP28 is a space where leaders, experts and change makers will gather to hold events, make announcements and share insights on nature’s place in the healthy future of our planet.
