This project, a collaboration between TCCC and TNC, implemented forest conservation, grassland restoration, and pasture restoration on 370.52 ha in the Rio Grande Ð Rio Chico Watershed of Colombia. In the area, cattle management represents 50% of the land use, followed by agriculture (38%) and forests (22%). Soil degradation and erosion on hillsides, as well as human-induced fires are problems in the area. Conversion of native grasslands with high water retention capacity an…
This project, a collaboration between TCCC and TNC, implemented forest conservation, grassland restoration, and pasture restoration on 370.52 ha in the Rio Grande Ð Rio Chico Watershed of Colombia. In the area, cattle management represents 50% of the land use, followed by agriculture (38%) and forests (22%). Soil degradation and erosion on hillsides, as well as human-induced fires are problems in the area. Conversion of native grasslands with high water retention capacity and forests to agricultural areas threatens the natural vegetation. The project areas are at a high risk of being converted to agricultural cropland and grazing pastures, activities which would alter the natural vegetation and natural hydrologic function, impact the water supply, and degrade the water quality. The project activities consisted of four parts: (1) Forest conservation on 365.82 hectares via conservation agreements with landowners where they commit to maintaining existing forests in conservation, allow regeneration, and install fences. (2) Grassland restoration on 1.69 hectares. Before this activity was implemented, the area was covered by active pastures where cattle could access grasslands, impacting the vegetation structure and the quality of the water. Fences were installed to exclude cows. As a result, the grassland and native vegetation have been restored and remain protected from cattle degradation. (3) Pasture restoration on 3.01 ha. active pastures. These pastures were overgrazed with degraded soil. The activity restored and managed pastures, resulting in quality pastures of kikuyo (grass) with adequate soil cover and no soil degradation. Cattle access will be allowed after the pasture have been recovered and according to a sustainable plan that will include rotation system, silvopastoral system and other sustainable measures defined in the property action plan with the landowner.

Nature-based solutions (NBS) offer a broad range of benefits, including improved water quantity and quality, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity protection. However, these solutions may also have trade-offs (negative or unintended impacts) such as displacing land users or replacing diverse ecosystems …
Nature-based solutions (NBS) take place within complex, dynamic, and self-organizing socio-ecological systems. These include biophysical, economic, political, and cultural systems. For example, a forest restoration project interacts with the forest ecology, hydrology, local communities, and regional businesses. The project also …
Effective engagement with local communities in nature-based solutions (NBS) projects requires thoughtful commitment. Build relationships with stakeholder groups and incorporate their input throughout the project lifecycle, from design and planning to project management and maintenance. Engaging and empowering a diverse …
By sharing your nature-based solution (NBS) story, you show that it is possible to create healthy, productive landscapes where nature and people thrive in a cost-effective way. By assessing the “full value” of your NBS project and demonstrating cost savings, …
Organizations, companies, and governments have the ability to design and implement nature-based solutions (NBS) at different scales. They can start with small-scale projects within their boundaries to develop a robust understanding of the NBS, test their hypotheses, and refine their …
