Working paper: The Governance and Politics of Nature-Based Solutions

We are examining the evidence for successful governance, business, finance and public participation schemes for the implementation of nature-based solutions. We also seek to deepen and strengthen our understanding of how and why nature-based solutions are politically contested. This working paper aims to bring together key insights on the governance of nature-based solutions – such as green/blue spaces, infrastructure and parks - in cities as emerging in the peer-reviewed literature. It contributes to establishing the framework for the empirical and conceptual work undertaken in the NATURVATION project, while looking for gaps, hot spots and on-going debates that require further research.
