Abstract: Nature-based solutions is a new trend in the area of urban and suburban planning. Thanks to its complex nature, Nature-based solutions provide multiple services on different levels of cities functionality. On the other hand nature-based solutions complexity requires extended knowledge in multiple engineering and societal areas, so the implementation is not straightforward. In recent years, countless publications, guidelines, reports, web portals and applications for NBS have been published. It is no trivial task to scope through the materials, given the overwhelming amount of information and variability of the up-front knowledge the potential user could need. The aim of this paper is to present the review of 102 support tools for nature-based solutions applications. The review contains tools published in years 2015 to 2021, among which the majority from 2021 is still supported by authors or actively operating community. The review was also enhanced by extracting metadata from investigated tools.
