WHAT IS NATURE BASED DEVELOPMENT ?
After 3.8 billion years of research and development, nature has developed some of the most advanced solutions to sustain life on Earth. Nature Based Development (NBD) is the science of developing buildings & cities to operate within the laws of Nature. It is a holistic approach that incorporates ecosystem services into the function of buildings & cities. NBD helps transform development projects to become socially, financially, and environmentally inclusive.
