Unlocking the Potential of Nature in Climate Action – A Report on Hong Kong’s Nature-based Solutions

The Nature Conservancy and Civic Exchange have jointly released the report, which highlights the interconnection between climate change and biodiversity loss, and explores the transformative potential of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to help Hong Kong achieve its climate goals. NbS include actions such as conserving, restoring, and effectively managing ecosystems that can remove carbon from the atmosphere and increase coastal resilience, while simultaneously benefiting biodiversity and human well-being. The report serves as a primer for the Hong Kong government, businesses, and civil society, and provides guidance for initiating NbS in Hong Kong.
