NetworkNature Nordic hub

The NetworkNature Nordic hub is a gathering place for all those who work with nature-based solutions in the Nordic region. It is a platform where we exchange contacts and share the knowledge, we gain about implementing nature-based solutions in our part of the world. Also, we post Nordic cases on the Case Study Finder page, so you can see different examples of nature-based solutions in the Nordic region. Occasionally, the Nordic hub will also facilitate events and webinars. The Nordic hub is administered by Jóna Ólavsdóttir, coordinator of the Nordic Council of Ministers' Nature-based solutions programme in the Nordic region.

Final report: Great opportunities, but also challenges, for NBS in the Nordics

The project report and a policy brief on status of Nordic NBS are now available – read them here!

Clear political priorities, institutional structures, common standards and funding structures are among the key factors for implementing nature-based solutions (NBS) in the Nordics.

These are some of the key recommendations in the new report «Working with Nature-Based Solutions: Synthesis and mapping of status in the Nordics».

Video: Pilot Projects in the Nordics

Politicians, universities and administration in the Nordic countries must gain knowledge about, how we benefit from nature-based solutions in the Nordic region. In seven Nordic countries, eight selected pilot projects are being implemented. They represent different nature-based solutions to different challenges, that arise as a derivation of climate change and the loss of biodiversity.

Pilot Project: Biodiversity in Urban and Coastal Areas in Iceland

The Nature-based solutions in the Nordic region programme has allocated 650,000 DKK to a pilot project in Iceland that aims to increase biodiversity in Reykjavík.
Grasagarður Reykjavíkur is the name of the outdoor collection of living plants located in the capital of Iceland. The park conserves some 3000 plant species in eight plant collections. The collections give an idea of the enormous diversity of vegetation in the northern temperate zone.
