A report looking to evaluate Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) has just been published by SEFARI. NBS have been defined many times, but in essence are developing solutions to societal problems using natural processes. Many ways of assessing the potential benefits and dis-benefits of these NBS have been put forward and, if these assessment frameworks are to be used for best results, then the most appropriate framework(s) should be identified and recommended to users. This SEFARI Fellowship project was co-developed with NatureScot to identify a suitable framework for Scotland’s terrestrial landscapes from those already developed.
This project searched for potential assessment frameworks and carried out a two-stage process to identify the most appropriate framework. Results and recommendations from the report can be found by accessing the link below.
