Using geospatial methods to determine where NbS can be deployed.

There is an urgent need to develop realistic landscape-scale assessments of the implementation potentials of NbS that maximise potential synergies between climate change and biodiversity goals, manage trade-offs, and are biophysically and socially feasible, equitable and economically viable. To meet this challenge, we are using new geospatial methods to develop a comprehensive approach to guide where, how and when NbS can be deployed in the UK. We are working closely with our partners and local stakeholders, and building on their efforts at a range of sites where NbS are being implemented and evaluated.
