“This first edition of Nature-Based Infrastructure for Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management – A Canadian Design Guide signposts and provides evidence-based guidance for practitioners on approaches, methods, and techniques for selecting, designing, deploying, preserving, and adaptively managing nature-based infrastructure (a form of nature-based solution) to manage coastal flood and erosion risk in Canada. It builds on existing international guidance to provide insights and lessons learned from Canadian projects and contexts. Although primarily aimed at providing technical guidance to Canadian practitioners and professionals engaged in conceptualization, design, and implementation of nature-based coastal infrastructure, the guide may also prove useful to communities, decision makers, policy makers, or non-technical users.”
