Nature-based solutions to climate change adaptation in urban areas: Linkages between science, policy and practice

Source(s):  Springer

This book brings together research findings and experiences from science, policy and practice to highlight and debate the importance of nature-based solutions (NBS) to climate change adaptation in urban areas. Emphasis is given to the potential of nature-based approaches to create multiple-benefits for society.

The expert contributions present recommendations for creating synergies between ongoing policy processes, scientific programmes and practical implementation of climate change and nature conservation measures in global urban areas. This book contributes to an increased understanding of how NBS can help to adapt to climate change through the provision of urban ecosystem services, of possibilities and limitations to their performance, and of how urban governance can use this understanding for a successful urban planning in growing cities under global change.
