SPS 2: Value Assessment of Nature-Based Solutions

This Special Policy Study report was jointly written by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The three research objectives of this report built upon and expanded on the conclusions of the earlier CCICED SPS on NbS. These research objectives were as follows: to develop a framework for the design and implementation of NbS that is compatible with Chinese policy; to establish a prototype database of national and international NbS case studies; and to propose an outline framework that enables the benefits and societal contributions of NbS outcomes to be consistently and comprehensively measured according to internationally adopted natural capital and national accounting principles. All the research objectives used the IUCN Global Standard for Nature-based Solutions as a consistent framework of enquiry. At the end of this report, we propose some recommendations, hoping that through the implementation of these recommendations, we can promote the integration of NbS into the policy mainstream across sectors, build a top-down management mechanism, establish a diversified funding mechanism, strengthen the research from theory to practice, then from practice to policy. Besides, enhance human resource and equipment investment, and public participation.
