Building with Nature (BwN) is a design philosophy in which natural processes deliver a number of benefits such as protection against flooding and coastal erosion, and opportunities for nature and recreation. Learn more about Building with Nature.
The Interreg North Sea Region project Building with Nature supports the practical implementation of Nature Based Solutions, by a scientific evidence base through performance monitoring at 13 natural catchments and coastal laboratories. The coastal laboratories assess the effectiveness of foreshore and beach nourishments to reduce coastal erosion and flood risk. The river catchment laboratories reduce river flood risk and create natural habitats and recreational areas simultaneously.
