Recent data show intensification of climate change phenomena, such as more frequent heavy rains and rising sea levels with consequent impacts on cities. Since the 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report outcomes are not positive, and a significant change is needed to keep the increase of temperature below 2 Celsius Degree, the United Nations are pushing to accomplish the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). This report investigates how Nature-based Solutions (NbS) for green and blue infrastructure can help meet the SDGs, focusing primarily on Goal 11 (Sustainable and Resilient Cities) and how the situation is for the accomplishment of SDG11 among the European countries. European Research and Innovations Agenda promotes the use of NbS in green and blue infrastructure since more natural and easy solutions to maintain. In conclusion, some NbS are shown as potential uses for the urban environment considering the future projection of floods at the European level.
