Nature-based-solutions strategies in GrowGreen cities

Wednesday, 24 November 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00 (Europe/Brussels)

The webinar will showcase the experience of three GrowGreen cities - namely Zadar, Brest and Modena - in the development of Nature-based solutions (NBS) strategies.

In addition, Tecnalia will give an overview on the use of the Green Cities Framework, an instrument to help cities in developing a successful strategy for NBS, ensuring the final outcome is grounded in evidence, co-developed with stakeholders and easy to put into practice.

The webinar will contribute to increasing the understanding of the multiple benefits of NBS, as well as the challenges and opportunities encountered in order to guide and encourage the deployment of NBS in other cities and regions.

In particular, the following questions will be addressed:

  • What are the drivers behind the cities’ decisions to develop NBS strategies?
  • What is the strategy development process and the expected achievement?
  • What are the lessons learnt, including success stories and challenges encountered?

The cities' presentation will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by IUCN.
