This project was presented at COP 26 and Commissioned by The World Bank and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR).
More than half of the world's population lives in cities, and that number is rising every day. Urban areas are becoming more crowded, reducing green space, and causing loss of biodiversity.
“Nature-Based Solutions” (NBS) are an effective way to turn these effects around and improve the resilience to climate change effects in our cities.
The NBS-Catalogue has been developed as a guidance document to support the growing demand for NBS by enabling an initial identification of potential investments in nature-based solutions that help cities address resilience challenges.
The catalog looks into ways to mitigate multiple climate-change-related hazards in the urban environment, with particular emphasis on flood management and heat stress mitigation.
