BARRIERS AND DRIVERS FOR IMPLEMENTING NATURE-BASED SOLUTIONS – SURVEY FOR EXPERTS

Participate in the survey and promote the development of cities towards sustainable use of Nature-Based Solutions!

ThinkNature EU-project has launched a survey for experts, inquiring about the barriers and drivers for implementing NBS.

You can find the survey here.

Nature-based solutions (NBS) use nature to create sustainability and resilience, adapt to climate change, and counteract the degradation of ecosystems. Such solutions should bring more diverse nature and natural processes into cities, landscapes and seascapes. They are meant to support economic growth, create jobs, enhance human well-being, and be locally adapted and resource-efficient. Read more: The EU Research and Innovation policy agenda on NBS.

Please also spread the link to the survey among your networks: https://www.think-nature.eu/highlights/questionnaire/

Thank you very much for your valuable input!
