Policy Brief 4: Coastal Protection and sustainable urban drainage systems – Nature-based solutions

Policy Brief no.4 examines the case of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in two different application areas: (1) costal protection and (2) urban drainage systems. It is based on one of the detailed narratives carried out for the RECREATE project.

Nature-based solutions (NBS) have the potential to sustainably protect cities from flooding, while also creating additional benefits for the environment and society. However, in order to unlock their potential, an enabling governance framework and research on long-term performance and critical factors is needed.
