Enhancing Nature-Based Solutions in Kosovo

Authors: Hessenberger, Daisy, Popovicki, Tanja,

Kosovo is prone to a wide variety of natural hazards – including floods, landslides, droughts, earthquakes, and wildfires – that could pose serious damages to the economy, fiscal balances, and the well-being of vulnerable populations. Many of these climatic-related hazards are expected to magnify with future climate change. These climate and disaster risks can seriously affect productive sectors of the economy, particularly agriculture, infrastructure, energy, water resources, and communities and households. The overall purpose of this scoping study is to provide the state-of-the art of the Kosovo national context with regards to the application of Nature-based Solutions approaches for climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction.
