Building with Nature: Creating, Implementing and Upscaling Nature-Based Solutions
Over the past decade, EcoShape has collaboratively designed, realised, monitored, and researched multiple projects that involve building with nature, not only in the Netherlands but also across Europe and in South East Asia. These projects demonstrate the ability to build nature-based solutions which create safe and sustainable flood protection as well as ecologically rich and resilient environments that provide attractive places to live, work, and visit. Here a dialogue with experts and stakeholders is presented on methodologies and experiences, illustrating key concepts and linking them to a range of landscapes and their underlying ecological, economic, and social systems.
Building with Nature is a proven, innovative approach to create water-related Nature-based Solutions for societal challenges, that harnesses the forces of nature to benefit the environment, economy and society.
