WASHINGTON , November 17, 2022 (press release) –

Verra has launched the SD VISta Nature Framework Advisory Group (AG) to guide the development of a framework that will outline the key components of a scientifically robust, pragmatic, and scalable methodology. The AG will also support the development of the biodiversity methodology for assessing and quantifying the benefits from conservation and restoration activities.

The framework and methodology will be developed under Verra’s Sustainable Development Verified Impact Standard (SD VISta) Program and drive much-needed investment to high-quality, nature-positive efforts, as supported by other nature-related frameworks and initiatives (e.g., Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures and Science Based Targets Network).

The AG is a diverse multi-stakeholder group, whose 25 members were selected through an open application process. They represent a broad range of geographies and sectors and bring expertise related to the following areas:

  • Market demand and drivers,
  • Technologies, methods, or indicators for biodiversity measurement,
  • Nature-related frameworks,
  • Financial instruments for investing in biodiversity outcomes, and
  • Biodiversity-focused pilot projects.

Verra will share progress on the Nature Framework during the 15th Convention on Biological Diversity Conference of the Parties (CBD COP15), 7-19 December 2022, in Montréal, Canada.
