Nature-based Solutions

Our Research

CCRG studies existing nature-based solutions to climate change impacts in rivers, catchments and coastal zones, including management strategies like Natural Flood Management (in fluvial environments), Managed Realignments (in coastal environments) and ecosystem restoration/rewilding including carbon and biodiversity credits schemes. A wide variety of approaches have been applied to quantify NBS impact, including field measurements, UAV surveys, and numerical modelling addressing the following NBS themes: 

Natural flood management 

Restoration of coastal ecosystems 

Managing sediment dynamics 

Working with communities to implement nature-based solutions
