Nature-based solutions for urban climate change adaptation: Linking science, policy, and practice communities for evidence-based decision-making

Source(s):  American Institute of Biological Sciences
Oxford University Press (OUP)

Nature-based solutions offer an exciting prospect for resilience building and advancing urban planning to address complex urban challenges simultaneously. This article formulates through a coproduction process in workshops held during the first IPCC Cities and Climate Science Conference in Edmonton, Canada, in March 2018, a series of synthesis statements on the role, potential, and research gaps of nature-based solutions for climate adaptation and mitigation.

The authors address interlocking questions about the evidence and knowledge needed for integrating nature-based solutions into urban agendas. The article elaborates on the ways to advance the planning and knowledge agenda for nature-based solutions by focusing on knowledge coproduction, indicators and big data, and novel financing models. The authors intend to open a wider discussion on how cities can effectively mainstream nature-based solutions to mitigate and adapt to the negative effects of climate change and the future role of urban science in coproducing nature-based solutions.
