Urban GreenUP catalogue of Nature Based Solutions

A year after its launch, the Urban GreenUP project has published a catalogue of Nature Based Solutions here.

The catalogue aims to foster the uptake of Nature Based Solutions as tools to make cities more sustainable and adapt to climate change by providing cities worldwide with robust indicators on how to embrace urban challenges using nature. URBAN GreenUP’s NBSs are grouped into four classes: (1) Renaturing Urbanization, (2) Singular Green Infrastructures, (3) Water Interventions and (4) Non-Technical Interventions. Examples include green cycle and pedestrian routes, floodable parks, electro wetlands, green roofs and facades, as well as citizens engagement and educational activities.
