Upscaling Nature Based Solutions in stated and regions

GlobalNature-based solutions are seriously being considered in ocean front. However Oceans donot thrive in isolation. Hydrosphere is deeply inter connected. Use of naturebased solutions in rivers and ponds can really make a change. Efforts in GGA, can be game changer with inclusion of Nature Based Solutions. West Bengal, India is witness of successful nutrient recovery through sewagefed fisheries and garbage fed agriculture for about a century now. East Kolkata Wetland a Ramsar site is an ideal example of circular economy, nature based solutions and source of cheaper fish and vegetables supply in local markets. Mangroves of Sundarban, an unique biosphere are acting as barriers. All such applications should be multiplied at rivets and wetlands for taking forward GHG emission reduction and adaptation at level of common citizens, while waiting for meaningful consensus of leaders at global level to combat climate change.

      Global consideration of nature-based solutions in ocean fronts is crucial, yet recognizing the interconnectedness of the hydrosphere is paramount. Implementing nature-based solutions in rivers and ponds, as seen in successful cases like West Bengal, India, can be transformative. Initiatives like the East Kolkata Wetland showcase circular economy principles, contributing to local markets and reducing GHG emissions. Multiplying such applications at riverbanks and wetlands empowers common citizens in climate action while awaiting global leaders' consensus. A localized approach is key to effective climate change mitigation and adaptation.
