Nature-Based Solutions for Water Security
and Climate Adaptation Conference

Bridging Science & Practice

Belgrade, Serbia | 3-5 July 2024

"Room for the River" NBS along the River Rhine at the city of Nijmegen, Netherlands

International conference on

Nature-Based Solutions
for Water Security and Climate Adaptation

There is growing evidence that traditional interventions for the reduction of hydro-meteorological risks (e.g., floods, droughts, heatwaves, storms, coastal storm surges, tropical cyclones, landslides, wildfires) have focused on grey infrastructure measures which are often limited in their approach and effects. A new response towards disaster risk reduction, water security, and resilience to climate change, which has a potential to be more effective and sustainable than traditional measures, is currently passing under the name of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS).

The Conference

This conference aims to bring together academic communities and practitioners to exchange information, experiences and research results on a variety of aspects concerning Nature-Based Solutions for Water Security and Climate Adaptation.

Organisers

The Conference is organised by RECONECT network, a project financed by the European Commission (www.reconect.eu). The Conference is also supported by the International Water Association (IWA) and International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR).
