Nature-based Solutions

Through Local Climate Action Plans, we encourage local governments to adopt NbS in their climate change adaptation strategies.

Nature-based Solutions (NbS) address climate change holistically: they integrate social, environmental and economic components, reduce the exposure and vulnerability of communities, and simultaneously promote the conservation of ecosystems, biodiversity and ecosystem services on which people depend.

The NbS are defined by the International International Union for Conservation of Nature  (IUCN) as «a planning and management methodology based on the use of biological diversity and ecosystem services to generate strategies for coordinated action and specific assistance in the adaptation of people or organizations to the adverse effects of climate change».

At ALPA Climate Solutions we are convinced that the implementation of this type of actions is essential to address climate change in a systemic way, as they are co-beneficial, efficient, cost-effective and synergistic measures to mitigate climate change.
