Describe the results/achievements of the actions taken: 
Good progress has been achieved in the implementation of this resolution since its adoption at the Marseille Congress. Thanks to the collective efforts of the various constituent parts of IUCN (members, commissions and secretariat) and its partners, there is now concrete and explicit recognition of the deep interlinkages between the climate change and biodiversity loss crises and the critical role that nature-based solutions can play in addressing both these crises in an integrated and synergistic manner across various policy processes. This has been particularly evident in the UNFCCC, both at COP26 in Glasgow and in COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, and in the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework adopted at CBD COP15 in December 2022. Additionally, 41% of 122 new NDCs submitted as of 2022 now explicitly reference nature-based solutions. IUCN, on its part, has actively supported greater understanding on this, and of the various elements highlighted in the resolution, at multiple levels, including through its position papers, publications, technical briefs and other policy and programmatic engagements and initiatives (including the IUCN Leaders Forum and the ENACT Partnership). It will continue to build on this effort in the future, including at UNFCCC COP28.
What challenges/obstacles have been encountered in the implementation of this Resolution and how were they overcome : 
Some of the specific elements called for in this resolution, such as a learning platform, global partnership, etc. are still under discussion via an inter-commission working group. These may also need to take into account recent developments such as the successful launch of the ENACT partnership by the Egyptian COP27 Presidency and Germany in collaboration with IUCN, to avoid potential duplication.
Briefly describe what future actions are needed for the implementation of this Resolution: 
The IUCN secretariat will continue to advance the implementation of the resolution that falls within its scope in line with the IUCN Programme 2021-2024.
