What are Nature-Based Solutions?

Paludiculture is just one of what are called Nature-based solutions (NBS).

These are actions to tackle societal challenges that are inspired by natural processes and which involve the sustainable management and use of natural features and processes. 

These challenges include issues such as – climate change, water security, water pollution, food security, human health, biodiversity loss and disaster risk management.

Other measures being implemented in the EIP will include riparian meadow and woodland and constructed wetlands for filtering out sediment and nutrients from farmland runoff.
