Nature-based climate solutions are actions to conserve, sustainably manage and restore ecosystems which, in turn, help to:

  • store and capture carbon,
  • mitigate and reduce the impacts of climate change,
  • build resilience and improve water quality, and
  • provide critical habitat for Canada‚Äôs wildlife.

Tree planting, habitat restoration and rehabilitation and land acquisition are examples of best management practices that are nature-based activities.

Conservation Authorities work with a wide variety of partners to deliver programs around tree planting, water quality improvement, habitat rehabilitation and restoration as well as agricultural beneficial practices, all of which helps to build local watershed resilience.
