The Blue Guide to Coastal Resilience illustrates Nature-based Solution
approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction, providing DRR planners with step-by-step
guidance for implementing various NbS in coastal areas. The guide integrates all relevant tools and processes into a
single source to help conservation and humanitarian DRR
planners determine whether and how NbS can be used to
harness the protective benefits of coastal ecosystems and
reduce the risks of climate-related hazards.
The guide helps DRR planners assess the context, risk and
possible NbS for a specific location, as well as the costs of
using them and the conditions that need to be in place to
be successful. The approach is highly participatory, requiring planners to
work closely with local stakeholders, including
communities and government decision makers, to ensure
support and sustainability.
