Nature-based solutions: Using engineering and nature to solve environmental challenges

June 03, 2024

Nature-based solutions (NbS), sometimes referred to as engineering with nature, is a design approach that leverages the positive benefits of natural systems in conjunction with traditional engineering. In this video, our global team of experts describe how we can use NbS to increase infrastructure resilience to climate change and solve watershed challenges. NbS can help cool urban heat islands, build up and improve salt marshes, and achieve nutrient neutrality within catchments. Using NbS can have multiple impacts on communities by creating green space and recreation areas. Our team discuss NbS in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Australia, and Taiwan.
