SDG Policy Brief 11

Oct 15, 2021

Nature-based Solutions (NBS) aim to strike a balance between human development and the conservation of nature. They simultaneously meet environmental and social challenges with actions protecting, managing, and restoring ecosystems for human well-being and biodiversity benefits. This paper focuses on the Republic of Korea's NBS practices in sustainable forestry that have contributed to strengthening resilience – environmental and socioeconomic. It offers Korea's extraordinary reforestation experience as a model example. It also presents case studies from China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan where NBS projects funded by Korean ODA helped strengthen local and regional resilience.
