Nature-Based Solutions Initiative
The University of Oxford is the home of the Nature-Based Solutions Initiative. This interdisciplinary research group brings together natural, physical and social scientists with economists, governance and finance experts from across the University and beyond. Its mission is to enhance understanding of the potential of Nature-based Solutions to address global challenges and increase their sustainable implementation worldwide.  More information on Nature-Based Solutions Initiative and their searchable bibliography >>.

Eco-system based climate change adaptation
Prof Nathalie Seddon is working as part of the advisory group, the ‘Friends of COP’, supporting the UK Government to deliver COP26. Nathalie is the Founding Director of the Nature-Base Solutions Initiative and is leading the knowledge exchange for an ecosystem-based climate change adaptation project in Bangladesh. Working with collaborators from the UN to the Wildlife Conservation Society, this project is looking to develop a robust evidence base for ecology-based solutions.
