Nature-based solutions (NBS) are gaining ground as cities across the world face increased urban sustainability challenges, including natural disasters, the disruption of ecosystem services, and associated health and well-being issues. Despite the numerous co-benefits of NBS, many cities find the adoption of NBS and linked processes challenging.
The UNaLab project aims to inspire cities and share knowledge and tools to support the different NBS implementation phases by presenting our resources and experiences in a series of five webinars across three days. The UNaLab processes and tools support the adaptive management of NBS. The webinar series sessions are organised around the adaptive management cycle (or PDCA-cycle) to highlight the applicability of available tools to the various phases of NBS implementation.
The webinar series will be kicked off by guiding you through the planning phase where various questions related to setting up and running an Urban Living Lab to develop nature-based solutions in the cities will be addressed. This session (the keynote speech, an interactive workshop, and a panel discussion) will be organized and run by Botnia Living Lab.
