Fridays for Climate | The alternatives to address climate change: Nature-based solutions 🌍

🌍 Climate change, environmental degradation and biodiversity loss are all linked and can have devastating consequences on health, social welfare and economic systems.

Longer-term phenomena, such as erosion, rising sea levels, degrading soils and water scarcity, are other scars on our ecosystems which are further depleting nature’s resilience mechanisms. 

Nature-based solutions (NbS) provide interesting alternatives for addressing the challenge of climate change while, at the same time, bringing other benefits, including ecosystem restoration, food provision, water supply and socio-economic development. 🌿These solutions are an umbrella term that includes approaches such as ecosystem-based adaptation and ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction.
