The science, policy and practice of nature-based solutions

The paper analyses Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in relation to similar concepts, based on literature evaluations and conceptual models, and reflects on the relationship of NBS to sustainability as an overarching framework. Implications for science, policy and practice are also studied.

This analysis and discussion was based on a workshop arranged within the ALTER-Net (Europe's Ecosystem Research Network) in February 2015, and has been linked to other meetings and activities within ALTER-Net and beyond.
