The article describes the use of the Nature-based solutions approach (NbS) for water management. The example of the Pleshcheyevo Lake basin shows that combination of the cost-benefit analysis and the Rapid Impact Assessment Matrix (RIAM) makes it possible to significantly reduce the cost of analyzing options for the water supply systems development towards sustainability and reduce the assessment time. In practice, it allows supporting search and preliminary selection of effective nature-based solutions in water management both in low-budget and high-cost projects.
