Description

This Handbook has been developed in the framework of the ThinkNature project. Its main objective is to gather and promote state-of-the-art knowledge regarding Nature-Based Solutions (NBS), comprising a comprehensive guide to all relevant actors. To this end, each aspect of NBS is investigated, from project development to financing and policy making, and is presented in a concise and comprehensive way, in order to be easily understandable.
Regarding the EU agenda around NBS, this Handbook contributes to:
• Expanding the knowledge base about the effectiveness of NBS,
• Supporting the implementation of NBS through enhancing their replicability and upscaling,
• Utilising the knowledge and experience of stakeholders, and
• Proposing a comprehensive methodological approach for innovation.
