This report provides city planners with examples of business models for selected nature-based solutions (NBS), as well as potential financing strategies that could support NBS implementation and operation efforts. 

The report aims at providing policy makers with the key components of the NBS business models, following a business model canvas approach. Based on these business models, the report introduces a mapping of financing mechanism alternatives for cities interested in working with NBS. This report analyses how and within which contexts the reviewed financing strategies are expected to work best with NBS technologies.
