About This Report / White Paper

This roadmap is an outline of strategic recommendations to put America on a path that will unlock the full potential of nature-based solutions to address climate change, nature loss and inequity.

The Roadmap calls on expanding the use of nature-based solutions and outlines five strategic areas of focus for the federal government: (1) updating policies, (2) unlocking funding, (3) leading with federal facilities and assets, (4) training the nature-based solutions workforce and (5) prioritizing research, innovation, knowledge and adaptive learning that will advance nature-based solutions.

There is also companion resource guide with examples of nature-based climate solutions and over 150 resources to spur action.
