BfN Schriften 446 - Nature-based solutions to climate change mitigation and adaptation in urban areas
Through this, we hope to further promote the integration of research findings and implementation experiences of nature-based solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation to help implementation into practice, to help city practitioners learn from the experiences of colleagues in other parts of Europe dealing with similar conditions, issues, threats and opportunities but also barriers to action.
