This case study collection and its disseminated lessons learned aim at giving added value for the World Water Development Report (WWDR) of 2018, which is entitled “Nature-based solutions for Water”. The WWDR is a UN-Water report which is produced by UNESCO WWAP in close collaboration with 31 members and 39 Partners of UN-Water as well as a number of prominent researchers/institutions.
The launch of this UN flagship Report on water issues took place at the 8th World Water Forum, in Brasilia, Brasil. See this post, to also find some filmed sections of the session about the report.
The Report aims at showing the importance to consider fully nature-base solutions (in parallel with alternative approaches) in water management policy and practice. You can find the PDF version here: http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0026/002614/261424e.pdf
