UN World Water Development Report 2018: Nature-Based Solutions for Water

UN World Water Development Report 2018: Nature-Based Solutions for Water (2018, 154p, 12 exec. summary)

This report published by UNESCO on behalf of UN-Water aims “to inform policy and decision-makers, inside and outside the water community, about the potential of nature-based solutions (NBS) to address contemporary water management challenges across all sectors, and particularly regarding water for agriculture, sustainable cities, disaster risk reduction and water quality.” These solutions “use or mimic natural processes to enhance water availability (e.g., soil moisture retention, groundwater recharge), improve water quality (e.g., natural and constructed wetlands, riparian buffer strips), and reduce risks associated with water-related disasters and climate change (e.g., floodplain restoration, green roofs).”
