Nature-based solutions policy brief - Nature-based solutions, market resilience and food sovereignty

As evidenced in the UNDP LAC portfolio, NbS offer the potential to enhance the resilience of market systems while also achieving environmental goals. NbS can strengthen local market system resilience to benefit the economy, vulnerable households, and the environment, and ensure that the region is better prepared for future shocks and stresses.

This policy brief was developed by the Northeastern University School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs by Laura Kuhl and Alaina Boyle with contributions from Claudia Ortiz, Montserrat Xilotl, Simone Bauch, Santiago Carrizosa, Alexandra Fischer, and Radhika Dave, Regional Technical Advisors for Adaptation and Ecosystems and Biodiversity in UNDP.
