The nature-based solutions (NbS) aim to achieve co-benefits for human well-being and ecosystems through effective actions, including practices and policies, in the management of natural and modified ecosystems. The application of NbS causes impacts on the carbon, water, and energy cycles among the Earth systems. In turn, the efficiency of NbS is influenced by environmental perturbations resulting from the dynamic interplay of climate change, societal factors, and technology advancements. To acquire a comprehensive understanding of the benefits and tradeoffs associated with NbS, emerging efforts are required for the integration of various methodologies, including direct measurements, remotely sensed information, Earth System Models (ESM), up-to-date analyses such as meta-analyses, numerical simulations, artificial intelligence, and cross-disciplinary investigations.
This special issue for Environmental Research Letters (ERL) provides an interdisciplinary outlet to advance the understanding of the effective roles of NbS by exploring feedback mechanisms within Earth systems. While not exhaustive, the proposed topics for this collection include:

  • Responses of diverse ecosystems to the climate, environment, and societal changes.
  • The role of NbS in enhancing land carbon sink strength and improving water quality and quantity, and other ecosystem services.
  • State of art in integrating cross-site and long-term measurements and modeling of ecosystem fluxes.
  • Advances in big data fusion, modeling, and integration technology through ESM and machine learnings.
  • The economical and societal benefits of NbS in context of ecosystem functions and dynamics.
  • Mechanistic understanding of coupling human and nature systems through the lens of climate, environment, and ecosystem interactions.
