Nature Based Solutions have proved their worth in the past decade. Their use and even necessity is acknowledged by the UN (Climate adaptation Summit January 25-26 2021), the EU (European Environment Agency) and the US (USACE Engineering with Nature books), just to name a few. Question is how to mainstream the use of these techniques and get them out of the pilot paradox situation.

Here Ecoshape presents Integrated System based asset management. A way of thinking about nature based solutions and all their associated benefits that incorporates total lifetime performance, their adaptability and uncertainties. It is a first, small step but may become a giant leap… 

The paper discusses the essential findings that emerge from more than a decade of EcoShape experience in BwN knowledge development, projects and dialogue with key Dutch stakeholders.
