Mapping Nature for People and Planet

Led by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Mapping Nature for People and Planet supports nations in using the latest advances in spatial data technology and science to create their own national 'Map of Hope.' Local stakeholders use national and global spatial data to identify essential life support areas. These are places where nature-based actions can sustain critical benefits to humanity, including food and water security, sustainable livelihoods, disaster risk reduction, and carbon sequestration. The result is a map that governments can use to harmonize nature and development policies and prioritize areas for protection, management, and restoration.
