It is clear that well-functioning ecosystems significantly mediate the effects of climate change, and although such so-called nature-based solutions are complex, it is also clear that they have implications for how nature and natural resources should be managed.

The impetus is on environmental experts and managers to develop and test approaches which can evolve into guidance on environmental measures and responses at a larger scale and on a cross-sectorial level. The project consists of six main outcomes, and NIBIO leads outcome 3 with Chinese partners at Nanjing Institute of Environmental Sciences and participates Outcome 6.
