Following the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, download a new report from IIED in collaboration with the Nature-Based Solutions Initiative (NbSI) at the University of Oxford, Investing in nature for development: do nature-based interventions ...

Does investing in nature actually deliver development at the local level? This report provides insights into the types of direct, site-based interventions that can help or hinder the achievement of development outcomes for local people and, ultimately, the delivery of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and the SDGs.

It considers a wide range of interventions and development outcomes, both positive and negative. Focusing specifically on low- and lower-middle-income countries, it explores documented evidence that ‘nature-based interventions’ or ‘investments in nature’, can deliver tangible development outcomes for local people, including jobs, food security, empowerment, as well as resilience to climate change.
