Nature Action Agenda

Leading the transformation of our economy and society for a nature-positive world

Nature degradation threatens our wellbeing, as well as our economic, political, and societal structures. Business-as-usual cannot continue. To promote the systemic solutions and transitions that will create a global ‘nature-positive’ economy, we need ambitious public-private collaboration, now. 

'We are heading to a new world and a new normal, where sustainability, nature-based solutions, social inclusion and mutual care must be the norm of coexistence'

—Carlos Alvarado, President of the Republic of Costa Rica

The Nature Action Agenda (NAA) is a multi-sector movement catalyzing economic action to halt biodiversity loss by 2030 and enable humans to live in harmony with nature.

The NAA is working to:

1. Build a compelling economic and business case for safeguarding nature through the publication of three New Nature Economy Reports focusing on risks, opportunities, and financing.

2. Disrupt business-as-usual in three priority systems - food, land and ocean use; extractives and energy; and infrastructure and the built environment- and transition to a nature-positive economy through its multi-stakeholder community of leaders, Champions for Nature.

3. Bring together high-profile and forward-thinking businesses calling for policy ambition and action in the run-up to the UN CBD COP15 through supporting the Business for Nature coalition.
