This chapter explains the importance for nature-based solutions as resilience infrastructure of cities. It sets the scene for the challenges and opportunities presented by a city-wide uptake and implementation of nature-based solutions as integrative and systemic solutions to planning for urban resilience and sustainability. We present not only the origins and the reasons for preferring nature-based solutions over conventional grey infrastructure for dealing with climate change pressures but also how different planning aspects of nature-based solutions need to be reconsidered, reimagined and thereafter, transformed. In conclusion, an outlook towards future cities is given on revolutionizing urban planning practice through naturebased solutions.

Abstract

This chapter explains the importance for nature-based solutions as resilience infrastructure of cities. It sets the scene for the challenges and opportunities presented by a city-wide uptake and implementation of nature-based solutions as integrative and systemic solutions to planning for urban resilience and sustainability. We present not only the origins and the reasons for preferring nature-based solutions over conventional grey infrastructure for dealing with climate change pressures but also how different planning aspects of nature-based solutions need to be reconsidered, reimagined and thereafter, transformed. In conclusion, an outlook towards future cities is given on revolutionizing urban planning practice through naturebased solutions.
