Nature-based solutions for climate change


The Committee is investigating the role of nature-based solutions in mitigating climate change. The inquiry will consider how protecting, managing, and restoring natural ecosystems can reduce greenhouse gas emissions while providing co-benefits to people and nature. It will also examine any scientific uncertainties surrounding their effects, and barriers to their effective implementation. The Committee has issued a call for written evidence, and will be taking oral evidence in autumn 2021.
