Nature based solutions (NBS) are called to be the future solution in the stormwater management. The current systems are not enough to manage the changes that are happening; the adaptability of traditional solutions is not enough to handle the climate change and it is necessary to change the point of view in the storm water management. It is not only necessary to try to assess the economical aspect, but it is also necessary to give the same weight to the environmental and the social aspects in the design of stormwater management systems. This NBS are a new way to solve the actual problems, in which it should be applied all knowledge acquired during years in the field asset management of other water systems such as the pipe systems. It is necessary to continue working with this NBS to learn how to manage the systems that compose them in the most efficient way and develop the required tools to help to make this process easier.
