Lecture 2: Nature-based solutions for climate risk adaptation

This lecture focuses on how different nature-based solutions can be used for climate risk adaptation. We provide portfolios of natural solutions for water regulation, coastal protection, landslides, soil erosion and urban cooling. Each of these is presented with case studies that illustrate how such solutions can be implemented in practice, with all examples from the Global South. We highlight the co-benefits that nature-based solutions provide and compare them to typical grey infrastructure. This lecture block therefore provides a base understanding of the role that nature can play as a green or blue infrastructure for climate risk mitigation. Get Started
