Nature-based
solutions

The UK is developing a series of potentially transformative funding mechanisms to support its 25-year Environment Plan, which includes the goals of improved soil health, water and air quality; increased forest cover; restored peatlands and coastal areas; and improved climate resiliency in the form of flood and drought mitigation and adaptation. There are various funding mechanisms under development, each of which has the potential to create new investment opportunities and markets for nature and nature-based solutions. The Green Finance Institute is exploring opportunities, mechanisms and programmes to inform and shape the approach to deploying both public and private capital at the scale and pace required to meet the Plan’s goals.
