Building with Nature offers a proven, innovative approach to creating Nature-based Solutions for water-related infrastructure that harnesses natural forces for the benefit of the environment, the economy, and society.
EcoShape is a consortium of contractors, engineering firms, research institutes, NGOs, and governmental authorities. In the past decade, it has conceptualized implemented, and analyzed Building with Nature projects in several countries. These projects demonstrate the capacity to build Nature-based Solutions at scale so as to create sustainable flood protection and cultivate resilient, ecologically rich living and working environments. Building with Nature, therefore, is the ideal approach for climate change adaptation and mitigation.
In this book, EcoShape introduces Building with Nature methodologies and outcomes. Dialogues with experts and stakeholders show there is an urgent and compelling case for further implementation. Key concepts are described, illustrated, and linked to six landscape types and their underlying ecological, economic, and social systems. This volume captures the imaginative potential of Building with Nature, and seeks to inspire readers and policy-makers across disciplines.
