Workshop on Nature-based solutions
February 2-3, 2021
Students from the Master 2 CLUES, “Climate Land Use and Ecosystem Services” at University Paris-Saclay, spent some time working on Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) and their consequences on sustainable development issues such as climate, biodiversity, land degradation food security and human health (see figure below).
They worked in groups of 3 students, each group addressing a specific NBS: urban greening, increasing plant cover to reduce erosion, reforestation and afforestation to mitigate climate change, or large-scale fire management. The groups were given the following two objectives:
- Develop a scientific argument on the relevance of their specific nature-based solution for the various targets (highlighted in the above figure), on the potential co-benefits and adverse impacts.
- The formulation of a research question and the development of a proposal to bring answers to this question.
This workshop, organized by the CLAND Convergence Institute and AgroParisTech, was the final step in their work. They have produced a written report prior to the workshop and they presented their conclusions during the workshop.
For each theme, a three-stroke waltz with about 40mns per stroke: students report on their work; an invited keynote speaker digs further into the questions; finally a discussion takes place between the students and the invited speaker, orchestrated by a moderator taken from the teaching community.
