Nature Based Solutions

Nature Based Solutions are both natural and constructed systems which utilise physical, chemical and biological treatment processes.

Nature Based Solutions

Nature Based Solutions are both natural and constructed systems which utilise physical, chemical and biological treatment processes. They also provide added value through the provision of eco system services.

Achieving Resilient Cities and Communities

Cities and communities are facing huge challenges due to climate change, along with increased demand on energy and water supplies. Nature Based Solutions (NBS) are both natural and constructed systems  which utilise physical, chemical and micro-biological treatment processes,  combining grey with green for the most efficient, cost-effective & sustainable hybrid solutions.

Project Information

Nature based solutions are both natural and constructed systems, which utilise physical, chemical and microbiological treatment processes. 

These processes form the scientific and engineering principles for water/ wastewater treatment and hydraulic infrastructure. 

 

Hybrid infrastructure: Nature Based solutions can combine traditional (Grey) engineered solutions with natural (green) infrastructure to create  sustainable hybrid infrastructure.

 

Ecosystem services are the benefits that humans receive from nature. 

Within nature based solutions these benefits include 

  • Climate change adaption, 
  • Water / wastewater treatment, 
  • Resource recovery & reuse and 
  • Restoration of degraded ecosystems.
