Our Mission

The NBI Global Resource Centre aims to bring together key partners to establish a business case for Nature-Based Infrastructure (NBI). We provide data, training, and sector-specific valuations based on the latest innovations in systems thinking and financial modelling.  

Our Approach

The complexity of NBI requires us to take a systemic approach when we plan, value, and implement infrastructure projects. It is also essential to exchange knowledge and collaborate with partners in the field.    

Our work quantifies the positive impact of stewardship activities on ecosystems and demonstrates the cost efficiency of NBI.
