This short course on Nature-based Solutions (NbS) is designed to help local officers in vulnerable countries to learn how to integrate NbS into policy/financing processes addressing various challenges, including climate change adaptation and disaster risk management. The course contains three lessons: Lesson 1 broadly introduces the concept of NbS as an umbrella term, addressing seven societal issues. Lesson 2 describes how NbS can be applied and used in local government processes, including planning and financing. Lesson 3 shows some practical examples of NbS that can inspire and promote practices that are in alignment with the local context.
