Natural Climate Solutions Alliance

Natural Climate Solutions: Practical, cost-effective climate action

The Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) Alliance aims to scale up affordable natural climate mitigation solutions for achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

These include; reforestation protection and conservation, livestock, animal and land management, and coastal wetland and peatland restoration, among a wide array of cost-effective solutions.

The NCS Alliance brings together public and private stakeholders to identify opportunities and barriers to investment into carbon credits in new, and existing markets, to increase financing for natural climate solutions.

The Alliance also serves as a forum for knowledge sharing and technical capacity building to ensure natural climate solutions reach their full potential in reducing GHG emissions, abating climate change.

Manage, Protect, Restore

The NCS Alliance will encourage the development of new markets for delivering nature-based solutions.

Capitalizing on Nature’s Role in Solving Climate Change

Natural climate solutions can provide around 30% of the emissions reductions needed to limit global warming to 2 °C. Despite their vast potential for reducing emissions, natural climate solutions attract very little public investment.

Partners

To mobilize natural climate solutions for addressing climate change, the NCS Alliance convenes public and private stakeholders to identify opportunities and barriers to investment into carbon credits in new and existing markets to scale up financing for natural climate solutions. The Alliance also serves as a forum for knowledge sharing and technical capacity building to ensure natural climate solutions reach their full potential in abating climate change.

The Natural Climate Solutions Alliance is convened by the World Economic Forum and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
