News New report: Resilient European Cities: Nature-based Solutions for Clean Waters

The Nature Conservancy published its report on Resilient European Cities: Nature-based Solutions for Clean Waters, by Sophie Trémolet & Nathan Karres.

The report examines how European cities can turn to nature-based solutions (NbS) to protect the water resources on which they depend and, in so doing, contribute to enhancing environmental quality in upstream watersheds.

Specific objectives :

- To identify European cities that are particularly exposed to diffuse pollution due to changes in land use and poor land management practices;

- To assess the potential for a selected range of nature-based solutions to mitigate diffuse pollution challenges and generate benefits for people and nature, when deployed at scale;

- To help water sector stakeholders, policymakers, funders and financiers identify practical ways to prioritise and deploy investments in nature-based solutions for water security (NbS-WS) in Europe.
