Forests, grasslands, peatlands, wetlands, and oceans are critical ecosystems that sequester and store vast amounts of carbon, clean our air and water, protect us from extreme floods and fires, and provide critical habitats for threatened species.

'Nature-based climate solutions' -  the protection, restoration, and management of these natural areas are now seen as key, alongside the clean energy transition, to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and stemming global warming.

This is a climate mitigation and adaptation toolkit aimed at specific landscapes and approaches (e.g., forests, wetlands/protection, restoration, land and water management).
