Exploring nature based solutions: the role of green infrastructure in mitigating the impacts of weather and climate change-related natural hazards

Source(s):  European Environment Agency (EEA)

EEA Technical Report No. 12/2015:

This report tries to demonstrate the role of Green Infrastructure (GI) for mitigating vulnerability to weather and climate variability-related natural hazards at European level, addressing some of the challenges and information gaps. It proposes a simple, practical methodology for screening (rather than assessing) ecosystem services in areas where GI may contribute to reducing current (or future) weather and climate-related natural hazards. The report addresses landslides, avalanches, floods, soil erosion, storm surges and carbon stabilisation by ecosystems.
