University of Southern Denmark – Denmark

The Elite Centre of Aquatic Nature-based Solutions for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation (aquaNbS) aims to scale up and integrate approaches of Aquatic Nature-based Solutions to expand the provision of multiple ecosystem services, including carbon storage, climate regulation, water filtration, coastal protection, and food-web support.

We apply cross-disciplinary approaches that span the full land-sea continuum and incorporate a comprehensive range of technological, institutional, and socio-economic settings. Aqua-NbS will investigate aquatic habitats and their valuable ecosystem services to craft inclusive, detailed guidelines on cost-effective opportunities and address the challenges in upscaling aquatic NbS. The project is strongly based on knowledge brokerage and co-creation through the involvement of key stakeholders at national and international levels, including local communities and civil society.
