Coordinating the contributions of different actors to realising nature based-solutions is one of the key opportunities, but also challenges of implementing these solutions. The "Business Models Catalogue for Urban Nature-Based Solutions" presents different models that depict how their integration can benefit different people and organisations (including reduction of climate risks, improving health and quality of life, and use of urban public space).

Models include (among others): the green densification model, which integrates nature-based solutions into urban real estate development; the green health model, showing how the therapeutic and health value of urban nature-based solutions is valued as a way to finance them; and the education model, where urban nature-based solutions are set up and managed in support of environmental education (for example with citizens engaging with food and nature through urban farming/gardening).
