Blending formal and ecological NBS design to benefit nature and people
19.01.2022. @ 10:00 am
Nature-based solutions (NBS) are nature-positive actions which provide environmental, social, and economic benefits, and helping build climate change resilience. Such solutions bring diverse nature and natural features and processes into cities, landscapes and seascapes.
Balancing the delivery of direct anthropogenic benefits, such as recreational activities, with biodiversity conservation can be a challenge for nature-based solutions projects, one that can lead to trade-offs and, often, diminished benefits.
In this webinar will be explored different approaches to balance design for humans with design for nature in urban NBS. Through case study examples we will learn how design for biodiversity and for people can be complementary over a range of spatial scales. We will also explore how biodiversity benefits can be evaluated to ensure that nature-based solutions in urban areas are delivering the intended biodiversity benefits.
