To do so, it will support transnational, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and cross-sectoral research projects in all parts of the world addressing one or more of the three (non-exclusive) themes below:
Theme A: Synergies and trade-offs of Nature-Based Solutions in the context of human well-being
This theme focuses on multiple links between the different goals of NBS, with a focus on jointly improving the well-functioning of the ecological system with human well-being, including physical and mental health, food and water security, as well as risk avoidance/prevention.
Theme B: Nature-Based Solutions mitigating anthropogenic drivers of biodiversity loss
This theme will address cross-sectoral approaches to direct and indirect drivers which negatively affect biodiversity (by loss or by change) including climate change, habitat destruction and fragmentation, invasive species, pollution, etc.
Theme C: The contribution of Nature-Based Solutions for just transformative change
This theme will address the contribution of NBS as drivers for just transformative change and just livelihoods, with specific regard to identification of barriers to transformation.
