This website by the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency bridges the gap between global scenarios and local realities, with the aim to both inspire and inform decision makers about the potential of nature-based solutions and restoration. By linking PBL’s global scenario work on restoration, conservation, sustainable use and management of natural resources with concrete local examples of nature-based solutions and restoration in practice, this website showcases how global sustainability goals can be connected to local level action.

The website covers:

  • An explanation of what Nature-Based Solutions are.
  • Scenarios and computer models which the PBL to explore such future pathways, presented in interactive maps and graphs.
  • An interactive exploration of solutions that have proven themselves within different landscapes.
  • Inspiring on-the-ground restoration stories that highlight the use of different solutions across various landscapes and showcase what the global perspective can look like at the local level.
