nature-based resiliency

Nature-based resiliency infuses properties, communities, and regions with greater ability to reduce risk, respond to change, and bounce back from a shock - such as a hazardous weather event. By mimicking ecological systems and processes, nature-based solutions like bioswales or other types of green infrastructure are designed to act as both infrastructure and natural systems. Often the best nature-based 'solution' is to simply prevent development from impeding natural processes by limiting impacts to floodplains, vulnerable coastal areas, and wetlands.
