Operational considerations for the integrity principles for benefit-sharing mechanisms in nature-based solutions

This paper demonstrates the application of WWF's Integrity Principles for benefit sharing mechanisms (BSMs) in nature-based solutions (NbS). It is adapted from specific guides created for three WWF landscape teams, offering a general version that can be adapted for other landscapes and organizations. This guide is organized into four key pillars of effective governance: (1) full and effective participation, (2) transparency and accountability, (3) fairness, and (4) effectiveness. Each pillar is subdivided into smaller elements containing prompts and questions to assist project implementers. This guide complements WWF's Integrity principles for benefit sharing in forest NbS for climate mitigation paper, which proposed 12 principles for how benefits of NbS can be shared in a way that is fair, accountable, rights-based, and effective. NbS harnesses the power of nature to boost environmental and social benefits. BSMs are what ensures that NbS interventions deliver both benefits and are sustainable in the long term. Achieving this relies on good governance of the BSM in NbS.
