Social dimensions of NbS

We work with a wide international network of researchers to synthesise and generate empirical and theoretical knowledge on the key and priority social elements of NbS. This is based on our understanding of NbS as a co-production process with social and ecological elements that interact across scales. Our work explores how key social concepts such as power, agency, knowledge and narratives can be used by researchers and practitioners alike to understand how to govern NBS for more effective, equitable and resilient outcomes. We draw from mixed methodologies, including quantitative qualitative social science methods, as well as participatory approaches for working with stakeholders, including historically-marginalised groups.
