Mangrove forests are highly valuable environments that offer numerous ecosystem services, including carbon storage, serving as nurseries for fish and shrimp, and providing timber. Additionally, these ecosystems offer coastline protection against erosion and flooding by attenuating waves and trapping sediment. Despite the crucial role of mangrove...

Live Pole Drains (LPDs) are a plant-based drainage system used to drain natural slopes and prevent shallow gully erosion. LPDs are a Nature-based Solution built by placing a live fascine in a shallow ditch or gully along the slope direction, allowing moderate fluxes of surface runoff or seepage to infiltrate and high water fluxes to be conveyed...

Human activities are dismantling ecosystems and eliminating genes, species, and biotopes at an alarming rate. Habitat fragmentation caused by urbanisation and infrastructure is one of the main causes of the decline in urban biodiversity. Despite challenges, project developers can enhance biodiversity in urban areas by adopting nature-inclusive...

Nature-based living labs combine the elements of nature-based solution design with a living lab context to address social and environmental resilience challenges. There is a need to deepen insights on the characteristics of the emergent phenomenon of nature-based living labs, with respect to their predecessors. Accordingly, the paper first...

The relationship between humans and nature is in permanent change. Where the city and nature used to be seen as enemies that needed to be kept away from each other, the current paradigm looks at a more symbiotic relationship. In this, man is seen as part of nature, and the city is seen as a determining factor in providing conditions for a rich...

Climate change imposes an increasingly big challenge worldwide regarding floods and droughts. The Netherlands is no exception to this, as it has been increasingly hit by these phenomena in recent years, especially in the south of the country. The July 2021 flood in the Geul catchment intensified discussions on climate resilience. It prompts...

Currently, there is no standardised process for monitoring and evaluation of nature-based flood defenses pilots in Dutch rivers and floodplains. Thus, piloted technologies cannot be compared fairly with other nature-based flood defense technologies and conventional solutions. This study developed such a process by way of a monitoring and...

Vertical greening systems (VGS), i.e. vegetated building facades, can harness the benefits of nature to contribute to resilient and healthy cities. A lack of guidelines for the early selection and design of VGS currently limits implementation. Based on a literature study and expert interviews, this thesis proposes a multi-criteria framework and...

Nature-based solutions (NbS) are increasingly being used around the globe as a climate action tool. In the Global South, which faces significant climate risks, higher urbanisation rates emphasise the importance of climate justice. While social valuations and interactions with nature-based solutions have been well researched, the relationships...

The Netherlands, primarily a Delta nation, is confronted with significant challenges in adapting to the impacts of climate change and rising sea levels. And the urgency to prepare for a significant climate change is more than ever, now 9 years after the Paris agreement, the feasibility to keep to the agreement of 1,5 degree is shaky. The...

The city Winnipeg, built on the wet prairie, has been threatened by severe flooding for decades. The initial decision to build the city at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers led to the inevitable consequence of recurrent natural flooding. The floods prompted the provincial government to take a series of flood control structural...

The coast of Paramaribo is predicted to undergo urban expansion due to the growing population of Paramaribo. However, the coast has to do with several challenges; tidal- and urban flooding and coastal erosion. This does not make the coast the most habitable place for urban expansion. The urban, water and soil systems are not functioning in...

The Dutch construction sector has the task in the coming years, to build around 1 million new houses in the Netherlands, most of which will have to be built in urban areas. Together with existing (inter)national crises such as the climate change crisis and biodiversity loss crisis, this means the sector will have to think differently to not...

Living Breakwaters have evolved from traditional breakwaters to create multi-purpose structures that provide environmental and social benefits. These breakwaters promote a healthy habitat for flora and fauna, while achieving the same structural capabilities as conventional structures. Reefy has developed a modular living breakwater that can...
