What are Nature-based Solutions (NbS)?
The protection and restoration of forests, mangroves, and coral reefs, the conservation or restoration of wetlands, or the creation of urban green spaces… the so-called Nature-based Solutions (NbS) are inspired and supported by nature to provide environmental, social and economic benefits. They also help build resilience. They bring nature and natural features as well as processes into cities, landscapes or seascapes - through locally adapted, resource-efficient and systemic interventions. Nature-based solutions are therefore supposed to benefit biodiversity and support the delivery of a range of ecosystem services. Preserving, managing, or even restoring ecosystems to meet today's societal challenges: such prospects offered by Nature-based Solutions are largely endorsed by Reforest‘Action.
