E-Consultation on Nature-Based Solutions
12 November 2014
The European Commission is developing an EU Research and Innovation policy on nature-based solutions to tackle some of the most pressing challenges of our time.

These solutions are inspired and supported by nature, while maintaining and enhancing natural capital. They are sustainable measures that simultaneously meet environmental, social and economic objectives.
The objective of the EU Research & Innovation policy on nature-based solutions is to position Europe as a world leader both in Research & Innovation on nature-based solutions and in the global market for nature-based solutions.
