WP5 - Identification of barriers and uptake of the necessary decision making mechanisms of the various local authorities and stakeholders. Deliverable 5.3 - Policy proposals and decision-making mechanisms for Climate change Adaptation and mitigation using NBS(Technical University of Crete, 2019-06-20) Bailly, Emeline; Marchand, Dorothée; Faucheur, Liz; Daoussi, Inès; David, Alexis; Pilla, Francesco; Florentino, Rui; Kolokotsa, Denia; Nikolaidis, NikolaosNature-based solutions (NBS) aim to help societies to address a variety of environmental, social and economic challenges in sustainable ways. They are actions which are inspired by and supported by nature. Some involve using and enhancing existing natural solutions to challenges, while others are exploring more novel solutions, for example, based on how non-human organisms and communities cope with environmental extremes. NBS are energy and resource-efficient, and resilient to change, but to be successful they must be adapted to local conditions.
