Nature Based Solutions (NbS) are seen as a promising venue for coastal adaptation to climate change. Combining natural dynamics with technical solutions, NbS can be driven by unpredictable natural dynamics, unanticipated surprises, and changing external conditions. And as such, they involve fundamentally different uncertainties.

Is technical knowledge enough to move adaptation beyond its current impasse? Evidence says that it is not.
In a new collaborative paper led by Marta Olazabal and published in One Earth, the authors argue that historically marginalized and subaltern forms of local knowledge must be considered in combination with technocratic top-down approaches to climate knowledge production.

A new publication on One Earth has found evidence that Nature-based Solutions can contribute to transformative change towards sustainable trajectories
The global environmental crisis calls for transformative approaches to sustainability. Nature-based Solutions (NbS) have great resonance in science and practice, but their ability to bring about transformative change has not been assessed. A new publication in One Earth provides evidence that NbS can contribute to transformative change towards sustainable trajectories.

Recent assessment reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) have highlighted the risks to humanity arising from the unsustainable use of natural resources.

Cities are projected to hold two-thirds of the world’s population by 2050 under a period of intensifying climate change. Ensuring sustainable, climate-resilient, and equitable cities will require moving beyond incremental adaptation to transformative adaptation. What does transformative adaptation mean for cities, and how can it be achieved, particularly in cities with low adaptive capacity?

Journal Article: Holm oak decline and mortality exacerbate drought effects on soil biogeochemical cycling and soil microbial communities across a climatic gradient
The extent to which the increasingly frequent episodes of drought-induced tree decline and mortality could alter key soil biogeochemical cycles is unclear. Understanding this connection between tree decline and mortality and soils is important because forested ecosystems serve as important long-term sinks for carbon (C) and essential nutrients (e.g., nitrogen and phosphorus).

During the Holocene (last ~11,700 years), societies have continuously modified the landscape of the Mediterranean Basin through changes in land-use, exerting extraordinary pressures onto the environment and adding variability to the climate. Despite its importance to current land management, knowledge of how past land-use practices have impacted the regional climate of the Basin remains largely in the scientific sphere.
