Nature Based Solution Science Briefs

  • 1. RRC


The deliverable "Nature Based Solution Science Briefs" outlines the context for the creation of four NBS policy briefs. These policy briefs are aimed at decision makers to encourage the uptake and application of NBS and contain key recommendations for their implementation.  

The content and recommendations of the briefs were derived from a review of the literature and the results of a survey disseminated to practitioners of NBS. The purpose of this survey was to gather evidence regarding the perceptions of NBS practitioners on working within the policy framework for implementing NBS, as well as different factors affecting the uptake and lack thereof of NBS in practice, and recommendations for how these could be overcome. 

These NBS policy briefs should be considered ‘active’ documents and will be updated throughout 2021 in light of planned consultations with key stakeholders engaged with delivery NBS. 


This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824711.
