5.1.1 What you’ll learn

Course subject(s) Module 5. Implementation

So, what will this module address?

In the previous modules of the course we addressed three crucial components for enabling nature-based solutions, A service design, B spatial design and C business model and assessment, and you should now be able to explain the relation of these components to the implementation of nature-based solutions. In this part of the course you will figure out how these elements come together and become operational in time.

In the service design week, we have discussed maintenance and appropriation. In the spatial design week, we talked about space and place. In the business model week, we discussed the harvesting of benefits. All these elements are meaningless unless their temporal dimension is taken into consideration and of course almost all natural principles deployed in nature-based solutions depend on evolution and growth and have a very important temporal dimension. This part of the course, the implementation, will therefor mainly focus on the temporal dimension in the delivery of nature-based solutions, basically shaped like a timeline. At the end of the implementation week you will be able to recognize the different gradients of the programming around a nature-based solution in space and time which implies that you can synthesize and pair environmental economics with governance models and spatial design.

By the end of this week of the course you will be able to

  • Differentiate gradients of programming nature-based solutions in space and time
  • Integrate environmental economics with governance models and spatial design
