Stange, E.E., Barton, D.N., Andersson, E. & Haase, D. 2021. Comparing the implicit valuation of ecosystem services from nature-based solutions in performance-based green area indicators across three European cities. Landscape and Urban Planning doi.org/10.1016/j.landurbplan.2021.104310
Performance-based green area indicators are increasingly used as policy instruments to promote nature-based solutions in urban property development. We explore the differences and parallels of three green area indicators: Berlin’s Biotope Area Factor (BAF), Stockholm’s Green Area Factor (GYF) and Oslo’s Blue Green Factor (BGF). As policy instruments they vary in their complexity and goals for green and blue structures. The urb...
Kronenberg, J., Andersson, E., Barton, D.N., Borgstrom, S.T., Langemeyer, J., Bjorklund, T., Haase, D., Kennedy, C., Koprowska, K., Laszkiewicz, E., McPhearson, T., Stange, E.E. & Wolff, M. 2021. The thorny path toward greening: Unintended consequences, trade-offs, and constraints in green and blue infrastructure planning, implementation, and management. Ecology and Society 26(2), 36.
Urban green and blue space interventions may bring about unintended consequences, involving trade-offs between the different land uses, and indeed, between the needs of different urban inhabitants, land users, and owners. Such trade-offs include choices between green/blue and non-green/blue projects, between broader land sparing vs. land sharing patterns, between satisfying the needs of the different inhabitants, but also betw...
Andersson, E., Borgstrom, S., Haase, D., Langemeyer, J., Mascarenhas, A., McPhearson, T., Wolff, M., Laszkiewicz, E., Kronenberg, J., Barton, D.N. & Herreros-Cantis, P. 2021. A context-sensitive systems approach for understanding and enabling ecosystem service realization in cities. Ecology and Society 26(2), 35.
Understanding opportunities as well as constraints for people to benefit from and take care of urban nature is an important step toward more sustainable cities. In order to explore, engage, and enable strategies to improve urban quality of life, we combine a social-ecological-technological systems framework with a flexible methodological approach to urban studies. The framework focuses on context dependencies in the flow and ...

Ecosystem services (ES) from urban green and blue infrastructure (GBI) provide cities and their citizens with benefits necessary to cope with present and future sustainability challenges. Long-term comprehensive urban greening strategies, policies, and plans are thus central to the development of sustainable, liveable, and resilient cities. However, urban greening strategies are increasingly tailored to provide short-term bene...
Andersson, E., Borgström, S., Haase, D., Langemeyer, J., Wolff, M., McPhearson, T.. 2021. Urban resilience thinking in practice: ensuring flows of benefit from green and blue infrastructure. Ecology and Society. http://dx.doi.org/10.5751/es-12691-260439
Present and future urbanization together with climate change and other uncertainties make urban quality of life a critical issue, and one that will need constant attention and deliberation. Across cities and contexts, urban ecosystems in the form of green and blue infrastructure, have the potential to contribute to human well-being as well as supporting biodiversity, and to do so under diverse conditions. However, the realizat...
Lin, B.B., Ossola, A., Alberti, M., Andersson, E., Bai, X., Dobbs, C., et.al. 2021. Integrating solutions to adapt cities for climate change. The Lancet Planetary Health. Viewpoint, Vol. 5, Issue 5, E479-E486, July 01, 2021, https://doi.org/10.1016/S2542-5196(21)00135-2
Record climate extremes are reducing urban liveability, compounding inequality, and threatening infrastructure. Adaptation measures that integrate technological, nature-based, and social solutions can provide multiple co-benefits to address complex socioecological issues in cities while increasing resilience to potential impacts. However, there remain many challenges to developing and implementing integrated solutions. In thi...
Mascarenhas, A., Langemeyer, J., Haase, D., Borgström, S., Andersson, E.. 2021. Assessing the learning process in transdisciplinary research through a novel analytical approach. Ecology and Society. http://dx.doi.org/10.5751/es-12631-260419
Inter- and transdisciplinary research projects bring with them both challenges and opportunities for learning among all stakeholders involved. This is a particularly relevant aspect in social-ecological research projects, which deal with complex real-world systems and wicked problems involving various stakeholders’ interests, needs, and views, while demanding expertise from a wide range of disciplines. Despite its importance i...
Hamel, P., Hamann, M., Kuiper, J., Andersson, E., Arkema, K., Silver, J., Daily, G., Guerry, A.. 2021. Blending Ecosystem Service and Resilience Perspectives in Planning of Natural Infrastructure: Lessons from the San Francisco Bay Area. Frontiers in Environmental Science. http://dx.doi.org/10.3389/fenvs.2021.601136
Globally, cities face massive environmental and societal challenges such as rapid population growth and climate change. In response, natural infrastructure is increasingly recognized for its potential to enhance resilience and improve human well-being. Here, we examine the role of the ecosystem services and resilience approaches in urban planning, which both aim to sustain the long-term benefits of natural infrastructure in ci...
Borgström, S., Andersson, E., Björklund, T.. 2021. Retaining multi-functionality in a rapidly changing urban landscape: insights from a participatory, resilience thinking process in Stockholm, Sweden. Ecology and Society. http://dx.doi.org/10.5751/es-12432-260417
Urban social-ecological resilience research has focused on conceptual explorations, while less attention has been paid to how resilience thinking in practice may inform urban development. Using the rapidly urbanizing landscape in Stockholm as a case, we explore the urban specifics of resilience thinking practice and thereby contribute to the development of knowledge and practice of social-ecological resilience thinking general...
Andersson, E.. 2021. The role of science in finding solutions to wicked, systemic problems. Ambio, http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s13280-021-01525-x
Why did solution-oriented research emerge and grow strong within Ambio ? What was the identified need? Ambio ’s aims and objectives state that “ Ambio particularly encourages multi- or inter-disciplinary submissions with explicit management or policy recommendations”. While this certainly encourages solution-oriented research it does not sufficiently describe what solution-oriented research is. With its focus on the hum...
