Embedding nature-based solutions into urban planning
As shown within these nature-based solutions, measures to compensate the environment are available. However embedding them into mainstream policies and urban planning procedures requires more effort, in the shape of establishing the evidence-base for NBS and unlocking funds for example via adaptation funds, taxes or public-private partnerships.
Turin will create a financial instrument to support the scaling-up of nature-based solutions. This will include a catalogue of environmental actions that companies can implement as part of their corporate social responsibility.
Zagreb will monitor and evaluate the environmental and social benefits of the proGIreg nature-based solutions implemented and, if successful, integrate nature-based solutions into planning procedures and policy development at local level.
