Cooperation Manifesto for Nature-Based Solutions (NBS)
The NBS Projects, funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, have the aim of bringing together cities, citizens, research institutes and industry to demonstrate Nature-Based Solutions and business models that can be scaled up and replicated in a joint effort towards a green urban transformation at a global scale. Since 2016 thirteen projects involving a network of more than seventy five cities and communities in Europe, Asia and Latin America are working on implementing and scaling up NBS in urban areas and measuring their social, environmental and economic impacts to transform cities into more sustainable and livable places. As the number projects and initiatives supporting NBS increases in the coming decade, there is a need for a common manifesto for guiding the cities’ adoption of nature-based solutions.
