Nature-based Solutions (NbS) have significant potential to support adaptation to climate change while providing a range of co-benefits, as a complement or substitute for traditional (“grey”) infrastructure. For example, increasing tree cover and green spaces can reduce the urban heat island effect and strengthen resilience to urban flooding, as well as improve air quality. The appropriate use of NbS can build resilience to climate change at a lower overall cost and with greater flexibility than would be possible with sole reliance upon grey infrastructure. Despite this potential, the use of NbS remains limited and there is an urgent need to scale up the use of NbS to be commensurate with the challenges posed by climate change.
On behalf of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region Environmental Risks Priority Area, we would like to invite you and your colleagues to Supporting the advancement of nature-based solutions in water management online workshop.
