Wednesday, 20 October 2021 - 9:45 to 11:45 (Europe/Brussels)

How can cities better communicate the benefits of Nature-based Solutions (NBS) to citizens and policy makers, thereby fostering their large-scale adoption and replication? NBS have emerged as a promising and multi-functional type of urban intervention to tackle societal, economic and environmental challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss. However, clear and sufficient evidence on their impact and outcomes is still needed to better assess NBS performance, devise mechanisms to replicate and upscale innovative solutions and inform policy decisions.

In this knowledge brokerage session, cities from the EU-funded projects Connecting Nature and CLEVER Cities will introduce novel tools and methodologies to deliver impactful NBS and track NBS performance.

The session will be designed to give the audience an overview of the different points of view, experiences and challenges faced by cities in various contexts while implementing impactful nature-based solutions with measurable co-benefits to citizens and the environment. -benefits to citizens and the environment.
