CARTIF PROJECTS

MAKING-CITY

Nature-based solutions

Description

 

The main objective of the Nature4Cities project is to build a data platform that help to the decision making process in cities through collaborative models based on nature-based solutions (NBS) that can be integrated into the urban planning of cities.
To achieve this aim, the project team proposes to develop several interactive modules that involve citizens. These modules are: a database of nature-based solutions; an observatory of best practices and case studies that are already in place; the creation of a set of business, financial and governance models that can assist in decision-making; and finally an integrated platform of tools for the evaluation of this type of projects.

 

Objetives

  • Development of an analysis framework for the integration of Nature Based Solutions in decision making processes for urban planning.
  • Structuring of the extensive current knowledge base in NBS for the renaturation of cities
  • Creation of a platform for multi-criteria impact assessment of NBS projects in cities
  • Proposition of innovative mechanisms to support citizen participation in NBS projects

Actions

  • Analysis and organization of the state of the art in NBS and development of an NBS evaluation methodology in NBS implementation projects.
  • Coordination and participation in the development of a web platform that integrates both NBS evaluation and citizen participation tools
  • Coordination in the development of the databases needed for the operation of the platform

Expected results

  • NBS, implementation models and pioneering projects databases for the renaturation of cities
  • Integration platform of different tools to help the implementation of NBS projects: impact assessment tools and tools for the dissemination of knowledge and citizen involvement
  • Demonstrations in real environments of the evaluation of different NBS projects with the platform and tools developed
