The future of Nature-based Solutions

Measuring nature using eDNA

Download our new guide to delivering effective Nature-based Solutions using innovative eDNA technology

In order to be able to invest in nature, you need to be able to measure it. This paper outlines how we see eDNA, and other novel technologies, being used to measure biodiversity and enable the successful scale-up of Nature-based Solutions, to ultimately drive genuine biodiversity net-gain across the world.

In our paper we reveal the following essential information:

  • Integrating eDNA into Nature-based Solutions to deliver real, measurable impacts for nature

  • Using eDNA to support biodiversity net gain

  • The best measurement solutions for meaningfully tracking progress in nature

  • A practical roadmap for implementing eDNA in your projects

“Investment in Nature-based Solutions (NbS) has the potential to deliver multiple outcomes that benefit climate, people, nature, and the economy. But nature is complex and difficult to measure and manage. The rapid influx of capital to Nature-based Solutions creates both huge opportunities and potential pitfalls. Data-driven decision-making is essential to successfully managing complex natural assets and accurately reporting on measurable outcomes to provide a flow of capital via carbon markets or future market mechanisms for biodiversity”
