Assessing the Solutions: Understanding impact assessment frameworks for Nature-based Solutions in Canada

“Nature-based Solutions are a novel approach to climate adaptation, but we lack coherent frameworks for assessing whether Nature-based Solutions are producing effective and meaningful results. I seek to undertake a comparative analysis of different assessment frameworks used in Canada to monitor and evaluate Nature-based Solutions projects. This research will contribute to the development of scrupulous and regionally relevant impact assessment frameworks that can rigorously evaluate the consequences of Nature-based Solutions for people and the planet.”
