Nature Based Solutions – Technical Handbook


The technical handbook of nature based solutions is a catalogue of nature based solutions for urban adaptation to climate change, produced in the Urban Nature Labs (UNaLab) project. Currently a draft version of the handbook has been published and will be updated throughout the project, until the publication of the final version. The handbook contains detailed descriptions of nature based solutions, including technical and design parameters and site conditions for implementation to be considered.

The handbook covers eight categories of potentially applicable nature based solutions for supporting urban resilience: 

  • Greening interventions
  • Public Green Space
  • Vertical Greening
  • Green Roofs
  • Water sensitive urban design measure
  • (River) Restoration
  • Measure of Bioengineering
  • Other NBS
