Rainforest protection, reforestation and restoration of degraded soils: building blocks of the GES reference model

Nature-based solutions for binding CO2 play a decisive role in climate protection. The aim is to preserve, relieve and expand the absorption capacity of the biosphere. In addition to their positive impact on the climate, nature-based solutions have many positive effects in terms of the 2030 Agenda, with the potential to create several trillion US dollars in value and hundreds of millions of new jobs. Nature-based solutions are a core component of the GES reference model. The paper penned by Prof. Estelle Herlyn comes from a more comprehensive text on the GES reference solution.
