To deliver a nature-positive future the world needs to be able to measure progress towards global goals, but currently lacks the tools to do so. IUCN is developing a quantitative methodology to measure and track contributions towards protecting and restoring nature. The methodology will help companies, governments and civil society assess opportunities and risks, set targets, measure progress, deliver nature-positive impacts, as well as assess investment portfolios and value-chain impacts. IUCN’s approach applies existing global standards and data, complements other approaches, and guarantees contributions will be evidence-based. IUCN’s approach is rights-based, and focused on delivering social equity. The Working Paper on IUCN’s Nature-Positive Approach that sets the direction and the methodology behind it is ready for an extensive consultation, and will incorporate inputs from all relevant stakeholder groups.
