Urban Nature European Assessment Maps
These maps show the potential of nature-based solutions to address climate change adaptation and mitigation across 775 European cities. A set of tools using open-source GIS-based modelling, was used to quantify two benefits of urban nature-based solutions (i.e. heat mitigation and carbon storage)
Metalliferous Hills Jug Band "geoperformance"
The Metalliferous Hills Jug Band (or Jug Band dalle Colline Metallifere, JBCM, in Italian) is an international and inter-generational collective proposing a combination of music and environmental practice, where melody, rhythm, storytelling and science outreach are merged in one situation. The JBCM
A catalogue of Nature-Based Solutions for urban resilience
Despite the growing demand for nature-based solutions (NBS) in cities, many people who make planning, financing, and technical decisions for urban resilience building have little knowledge of when and how to build with nature. It creates a need for better guidance, more real-world examples that
Valuing Inclusion and Diversity, Embracing Uncertainty: Ways Forward for Nature-based Solutions
There is a growing consensus that working with nature can help to address the pressing interlinked climate and biodiversity challenges, whilst ensuring and enhancing human well-being. Though being driven primarily by climate change mitigation and increasingly adaptation, Nature-based Solutions (NbS
Why is nature restoration critical to sustain jobs and economic benefits from healthy ecosystem services?
Nature restoration leads to job creation and maintenance and is particularly important for local communities. It is estimated that the investment needs of the Natura 2000 network can support as many as 500,000 additional jobs. Restoration activities are both directly and indirectly linked to job
Nature-based Solutions - State of the Art in EU-funded Projects
This report summarises outcomes from the EC individual expert reports delivered through its ‘Valorisation of NBS Projects’ initiative. EU research and innovation projects were scanned for results pertaining to key areas such as biodiversity, climate change mitigation and adaptation (including
Smart, Sustainable and Resilient cities: the Power of Nature-based Solutions
Despite being engines of development, innovation and interaction, cities can also exacerbate some of the world's most serious environmental and socio-economic challenges. It is therefore necessary that cities are planned and designed with nature in mind. Nature-based solutions (NbS) are
Greenopolis: Educational platform about sustainable urban development, climate challenges and NBS
A learning platform about healthy and liveable cities. Your nature guide, e-Boti, introduces you to urban development, climate challenges, and nature-based solutions.
The Ecosystem Valuation Toolkit
Ecosystem service valuation is a process that quantifies the economic benefits of nature for inclusion in decision-making at scales from local to global. The EVT seeks to accelerate the adoption of ecosystem service valuation by providing a comprehensive, searchable online database of values for
Intregrated Biodiversity Management, South Caucasus
Together with our partners, we develop strategies to facilitate the sustainable management of biodiversity and ecosystem services across sectoral and administrative boundaries, based on solid data. We contribute to safeguarding the diversity of species and ecosystems for future generations.
Helping Ecosystems in Europe to adapt to climate change
This report summarises much of the work done by, and for, the Climate Change Group of the European Network of Heads of Nature Conservation Agencies (ENCA) between 2011 and 2013.
The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity in Local and Regional Policy Management
In this volume of the TEEB (The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity) publication series, the key concepts of the project are applied to local and regional policy and public management. The aim is to show that by taking nature's benefits into account, decision makers can promote local
A Practical Guide to Climate-resilient Buildings & Communities
A Practical Guide to Climate-resilient Buildings & Communities offers construction solutions to adapt to a range of different risks in various climates. For instance, it shows us how to reduce indoor heat in hot and arid climates, or how to mitigate cyclone impacts on buildings in hot and humid
GrowGreen Thematic Factsheets
The GrowGreen Partners made a collaborative effort for creating a list of factsheets, in order to summarise the results of the various projects. The factsheets are organised by thematic area, that are biodiversity, economic impacts, heat stress, social benefits, water runoff, and water quality.
GIZ ValuES - Fact sheet on training on Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES)
One specific instrument to capture the value of ecosystem services are payments for ecosystem services (PES). A PES scheme can be designed in various different ways, based on the intended outcomes and target areas. In this training module, the basic characteristics of a PES scheme as well as
The multiple values of urban nature: Evidence from 1,000 European nature-based solutions
Urban nature-based solutions can be designed to deliver diverse social, cultural, environmental and economic benefits in parallel. This instills them with the potential to contribute to multiple policy goals simultaneously. Making optimal use of such solutions requires an understanding of the
Nature-based solutions to climate change mitigation and adaptation in urban areas
This report summarises much of the work done by the German Federal Agency of Nature Conservation (BfN) in cooperation with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research-UFZ and the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) in the frame of a research and development project on
Toolkit for monitoring urban sprawl and evaluating threats to sustainability.
Hogyan váljunk méhbarát kerületté, településsé?
