Since 2017, the Natural Capital Coalition, with the support of IDEEA Group, has been working on the delivery of the Combining Forces program. The objective of this initiative is to establish and promote a common and harmonized understanding of the different natural capital approaches used by businesses and governments, with the greater aim of ensuring that the value of nature is included in decision-making across the board.

Combining Forces brings together many of the leading players in this space. It is an open, cross-cutting network of experts from all sectors including civil society, science and academia, business, finance, government and international organizations.

Combining Forces operates as a convening network to initiate ideas, work collaboratively and identify opportunities. It is not a standard project and it does not have a governance structure, with boards and committees. The network is open to anyone who would like to join.

Building on the ‘Combining Forces: Priority Areas for Collaboration’ report, we are preparing a multiple-year program to develop Combining Forces case studies to deepen knowledge and interaction. For this purpose, we are seeking Expression of Interest in conducting a Combining Forces case study. Please find below the Application Form, accompanied by a briefing note outlining the background and aims of undertaking a Combining Forces Case Study.
