Title

Sustainable Solutions from Nature: Research Advancements and Application Prospects in China

Author

1. Wenxin Li, Professor, Zhejiang University, China, China

Abstract

This research aims to synthesize previous work on Nature-based Solutions, which have gained prominence in climate change and equitable development studies. Using China's National Knowledge Inventory and the WOSB, academic articles on NbS are screened to identify critical points, explore relationships between research pieces, and propose avenues for enhancing NbS in academic and industrial contexts. The study reveals a current focus on object-based schemes rather than subject or goal-based approaches, emphasizing the importance of indigenous resource applications within China's NbS development. The findings shed light on diverse domestic and international methods employed to investigate and implement Nature-based approaches, facilitating their localization in China.

Conclusion

This study employs statistical methods to assess the progress of NbS research, examining its primary focuses, resource definition, and shifting research agenda. Key topics emerging from the analysis include environmental pollution, ecosystem conservation and restoration, sustainable cities, urban ethics, and equitable development. The findings indicate a growing academic interest in NbS across various disciplines, with a steady increase in publications. Notable focus areas include sponge towns, water management, carbon neutrality, economy, and integrated water-NbS approaches. The shift in NbS studies is observed from philosophical inquiry towards applied work and policy development. However, the study highlights a need for both theoretical and practical knowledge of NbS implementation options, emphasizing the importance of region-specific research in China to address diverse challenges faced throughout the country.
