The Connecting Nature Enterprise Platform (CNEP) was launched in October 2020 as a direct response to addressing a significant bottleneck where cities and developers seeking to implement NbS voiced their difficulty in finding and sourcing skilled suppliers of NbS. Developed as a marketplace to match buyers and suppliers of NbS, the Platform has also introduced communities of practice now totalling 10 where nature-based enterprises and other organisations operating in the same sectors meet informally, network, exchange best practice and potentially collaborate. Another goal of the platform is to share knowledge and relevant research outcomes on the nature-based economy. The platform is open to everyone. We encourage you to visit the website and get involved:
