A niche concept for optimal social and environmental results
Urbanisation represents a major global environmental concern since it has significant implications for both human health and natural ecosystems. Nature-based solutions (NbS), which are cost-effective solutions supported by nature in providing a plethora of environmental and social benefits, appear promising. However, NbS performance relies on a uniform approach and does not have the same influence on all cases. In addition, NbS are not grounded on an extensive understanding of the basic processes and functional relations. The EU-funded Niche4NbS project will develop and test a new approach that optimises co-benefits. By implementing the ecological niche concept and a sequence of nature dose-response experiments, the project will offer the capability to predict and plan the best NbS implementation.
