The journal "Problems of Regional Ecology" N1/2019 published an article by G.Fomenko, A.Akhremenko, K.Loshadkin, D.Travina entitled "Naturally-Based Solutions Approach to Development of Water Supply Systems from Surface Waters of Plescheyevo Lake Basin"

The article describes the use of the Nature-based solutions approach (NbS) for water management. The example of the Pleshcheyevo Lake basin shows that combination of the cost-benefit analysis and the Rapid Impact Assessment Matrix (RIAM) makes it possible to significantly reduce the cost of analyzing options for the water supply systems development towards sustainability and reduce the assessment time. The article shows possibilities of applying the synthesis of expert and economic analysis in the implementation of the concept of nature-based solutions in water management. In practice, it allows supporting search and preliminary selection of effective nature-based solutions in water management both in low-budget and high-cost projects.
