About this book

Urban greening policies and measures have recently shown a high potential impact on the design and reshaping of the built environment, especially in urban regeneration processes. This book provides insights on analytical methods, planning strategies and shared governance tools for successfully integrating Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in the urban planning practice. The selected contributions present real-life application cases, in which the mainstreaming of NBS are investigated according to two main challenges: the planning and designing of physical and spatial integration of NBS in cities on one side, and the implementation of suitable shared governance models and co-creation pathways on the other. 

Chapter 5 is available open access under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License via link.springer.com.

The authors have done an excellent job in presenting extremely comprehensive information and knowledge about NBS in a very simple and easy to understand way, even by non-experts.
Congrats to them, the EU-funded projects that supported the research such as Horizon 2020 project Clever Cities.
I hope the urban authorities and the professionals in the field will embrace it and use it in exercising their daily duties and tasks.
