NbS Insight - Question 5

How do you avoid duplication or even competition between similar platforms like the Natural Capital toolkit? Posted by Lars Müller, European Commission DG Environment


Many organizations and initiatives develop online libraries, hubs, communities and knowledge platforms, but these are often developed, operated and maintained in isolation from one another. The most important factor in order to avoid unhelpful duplication and counterproductive competition is for platform developers, curators and managers to actually speak to one another. Once personal relationships have been formed, and platforms are clear about the aims, methods and strengths of each other’s platforms, the case for working together to collective promote the work being done on an individual level becomes clear.

You can read about one such initiative between several natural capital / ecosystem services/ nature-based solutions platforms on the World Forum on Natural Capital: http://bit.ly/2fYSPGV
