On Earth Day 2022, President Biden made nature-based solutions a national priority. In an Executive Order, he made a broad call for action to create nature-based solutions to tackle climate change. A new study, called the National Nature Assessment, was created. Its scope is to assess the status, observed trends, and future projections of America’s lands, waters, wildlife, biodiversity, and ecosystems and their benefits, including connections to the economy, public health, equity, climate mitigation and adaptation, and national security.


In this webinar, Dr. Phillip Levin, Ph.D., a Professor of Practice at the University of Washington in the School of Environment and on loan to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as the Director of the first-ever National Nature Assessment will share more about the National Nature Assessments’ recently released prospectus. This document was created from conversations with representatives from over 133 organizations and 40 states in the US. It evaluates how changes in nature impact safety, security, human health and equity.


Learn more and share how nature and climate change is impacting health and well-being in your communities. Find ways that this assessment can be useful in your IVP work.
