NatureBid is an online auction tool allowing "reverse auctions" to be run, in which participants can bid for funding to implement a range of environmentally beneficial measures on their land.

The Environment Agency designed and developed NatureBid, with partner Sylva Foundation, with the broad goal of increasing climate resilience using an innovative and cost-efficient mechanism.

So far, the tool has been trialled across Somerset and in Dartmoor, with a variety of trials scheduled for the remainder of 2019/20.

If you would like any more information about NatureBid, or are interested in running an auction using the tool, please contact Claire Johnstone at
