Increasing Infrastructure Resilience with Nature-Based Solutions (NbS)
Nature-based Solutions (NbS) are a cost effective way to build infrastructure resilient to a changing climate, while also delivering other societal benefits. Yet, project developers in Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC) have limited experience structuring these type of projects. In tackling some of these downstream challenges, the present technical guide provides a 12-step process to integrate NbS into project development. The Guidance is targeted to planners, engineers, architects, contractors and operators interested in preparing bankable climate resilient projects that incorporate NbS either as a substitute, complement or safeguard to conventional infrastructure projects.
