Nature-Based Solutions and Water Security: An Action Agenda for the 21st Century presents an action agenda for natural infrastructure on topics of standards and principles, technical evaluation and design tools, capacity building, and innovative finance. Furthermore, this important new reference continues and builds on those discussions by pulling together the thinking of the network of practitioners to reflect on the state of the art and emerging developments in NBS for water. It also presents the community of practice's collective thinking on a prioritized action agenda to guide more rapid progress in mainstreaming NBS. Natural Infrastructure and Water Security include contributions from global authors, including key individuals and organizations active in developing NBS solutions. It starts by introducing the topic and concepts of natural infrastructure, or nature-based solutions (NBS) and water security, with background on the urgency of the global water crisis and the role that NBS can and should play in addressing this crisis. And it ends with conclusions and recommendations from the chapters throughout the book, to present a collaboratively developed, consensus roadmap to scaling NBS. Covers all issues of water security and focuses on water security and Natural Infrastructures Presents a comprehensive state of synthesis, providing readers with a solid grounding in the field of Natural Infrastructures and water security, in one accessible place Includes a fully workable and intuitive roadmap for action, presented as a guide to the most important actions for practitioners; priority research questions for academics; information on promising careers for students entering the field

This paper discusses how natural infrastructure, the networks of land and water that provide services to people, can help decision makers and infrastrucuture managers address interconnected challenges facing water, energy and food systems, often referred to as the "nexus." The paper examines reasons and ways to include natural infrastructure in this nexus, challenges that have prevented increased investment in natural infrastructure, and recommendations for moving forward.

This book offers new research on urban policy innovations that promote the application of blue-green infrastructure in managing water resources sustainably. The author argues that urban water managers have traditionally relied on grey infrastructural solutions to mitigate risks with numerous economic and environmental consequences. Brears explores the role urban water managers have in implementing blue-green infrastructure to reduce ecological damage and mitigate risk. The case studies in this book illustrate how cities, of differing climates, lifestyles and income-levels, have implemented policy innovations that promote the application of blue-green infrastructure in managing water, wastewater and stormwater sustainably to reduce environmental degradation and enhance resilience to climate change. This new research on urban policy innovations that promote the application of blue-green infrastructure in managing water resources sustainably will be of interest to those working on water conservation and policy.
