Lecture 3: Integrating NbS with built infrastructure in different core infrastructure sectors

This lecture focuses on how nature-based solutions (NbS) can be strategically integrated in different infrastructure sectors in order to deliver benefits for the sector as well as wider co-benefits for society, the economy and the environment. The sectors explored include water, solid waste, wastewater, energy, digital communications, transport and the urban environment. The potential for NbS to substitute, complement or protect the services provided by different infrastructure sectors is considered through examples and case studies. This lecture therefore provides a foundation for understanding how nature can be leveraged practically in different infrastructure sectors to achieve multiple benefits. Get Started
