Climate Resilient by Nature

Climate Resilient by Nature (CRxN) is supporting communities to tackle climate change by working with nature-based solutions. CRxN supports projects across the Pacific that restore and protect critical ecosystems, building sustainable livelihoods and increased resilience to climate shock.

CRxN is an Australian Government initiative in partnership with WWF-Australia. Working with Live & Learn, Nakau Programme and other partners, it is piloting innovative nature-based solutions projects in the Pacific, including in Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.

This project is expanding nature-based solutions in the Pacific by working in collaboration with Indigenous communities to protect and restore critical ecosystems and build social, economic and climate resilience.

Through the nature-based solution of sustainable carbon finance, the project is supporting

new and diverse income-generating opportunities that can benefit everyone within

communities and grow the emerging high integrity carbon market in the region.

The project primarily uses the Nakau methodology — a purpose-built Pacific rainforest

conservation finance program that empowers Indigenous communities to protect their

forests while delivering social, financial, cultural and climate resilience benefits to customary landowners.
