But the true return on investment for nature-based solutions is realized when the other, multiple benefits they provide are considered.For example, wetlands, floodplains, forests, prairies and marshes improve water quality by filtering pollutants and sediment from water.In a study in Philadelphia, vacant lots—which are often associated with illegal activity—were cleaned of trash and illegal dumping, planted with grass and trees, and had a small wooden fence built around the perimeter.The greening activity was associated with reductions in violent crimes and improvements in residents' perceptions of safety.The team is led by Lieutenant Horatio Caine (David Caruso), who, through his history as a bomb-disposal expert, has gained specialized knowledge in explosive forensics.Horatio believes that "evil is" and lives "between the perpetrators of this evil and the people who try and come between that evil and the citizen".Following the series finale, Nina Tassler credited CSI: Miami as a "key player in CBS's rise to the top", stating that the series "leaves an amazing television legacy – a signature look and style [and] global popularity".CSI: Miami follows a group of detectives assigned to the Miami-Dade Police Department's Crime Scene Investigations, an elite unit operating out of the "(fictional) Miami Dade police headquarters, with its eerie blue light and flickering screens".
Communities across the country— along rivers or coasts, large or small, rural or urban— can incorporate nature-based solutions in local planning, zoning, regulations, and built projects to help reduce their exposure to flood and erosion impacts. Smart nature-based solutions provide multiple benefits, giving communities high returns on their investments in flood risk reduction strategies.
For instance, we are safer when rivers have more room during floods and floodwaters can disperse and slow down rather than rise, rage and threaten communities.
Along our coasts, natural features like sand dunes and marshes or coral reefs and oyster reefs reduce wave heights, absorb storm surges and help stop erosion.
A related study in Philadelphia found study participants who walked by a ‘greened’ vacant lot showed decreased heart rate, a sign of reduced stress, compared to a control group.
The trees and vegetation in natural areas and green spaces improve water quality and air quality, particularly in larger cities, which has been connected to lower rates of asthma and wheezing in urban populations.
