Urban Nature Atlas

The Urban Nature Atlas was created as part of the NATURVATION Project and is currently the most comprehensive database of Nature Based Solutions (NBS) for cities created to date. The Urban Nature Atlas has been produced as the result of a systematic survey of NBS interventions and provides the basis for the analysis of socio-economic and innovation patterns associated with urban NBS in Europe

Project for Optimisation of Water and Emissions Reduction

The main objective of the POWER project was to implement additional monitoring devices to improve the water savings demonstrated by the LIFE OPTIMIZAGUA project in Spain. It aimed to do this by applying leak detectors with probes at various soil depths, as well as using new methods to calculate water needs relating to climate conditions

Riga City Adapts to the Hydrological Processes

The water regime of the Daugava River is largely dependent on the operations of the Riga Hydropower plant. Increased frequency and severity of flash floods is becoming an alarming problem for the city of Riga

The Galician agriculture and forest sector facing climate change.

The project aims to inform farmers on new legislation and possible subsidies to improve environmental standards in farms and provide specific guidance on how to implement good practices for mitigation and adaptation to climate change. The agro-forestry sector is promoted as a sustainable management alternative to cope with climate change

Medium and long term water resources modelling as a tool for planning and global change adaptation. Application to the Llobregat Basin

The WATER CHANGE project aimed to provide the tools and methodology necessary to model the impact of Global Change on water resources and infrastructure. Global change is defined as all the anthropic-related changes affecting directly or indirectly the water quantity and the water quality, influencing the sustainable management of the water resources in a river basin

EGOKI: integrating adaptation to climate change in spatial and urban planning in municipalities in Navarre

The Navarre Network of Local Entities for Sustainability (NELS Network)  with the support of the Biodiversity Foundation and the Spanish Climate Change Office has developed the Project titled "EGOKI, integrating criteria for adaptation to climate change into urban planning of local entities of the Comunidad Foral de Navarra (Navarre Region)". EGOKI has developed different actions, among which, agent training and  the development of pilot experiences in four municipalities that can be replicated across all of Navarre stand out

Fluvial Restoration of the Manzanares River in the surroundings of the Real Sitio de El Pardo (Madrid)

Pursuant to the Water Framework Directive and in accordance with the environmental objectives of the Hydrological Plan of the Tagus River Hydrographic Basin, in coordination with Patrimonio Nacional (as the entity that manages the Monte de El Pardo area), the improvement of the ecological condition of the river has been proposed as well as the recovery of this space of great environmental value, from the Pardo Reservoir to the confluence with the La Trofa stream (a distance of approximately 6 km). This section coincides with Water Body ES030MSPF0428021 «Río Manzanares», which is cataloged in the Hydrological Plan as a water body that is "highly modified" from El Pardo Reservoir to the La Trofa stream

What are the sectors and geographical spread of these projects? What is the scale of capital investment required for these projects? What are the climate benefits and co-benefits of these projects? What kind of support are cities asking for to proceed to implementation? What challenges to project implementation do cities currently face? First, the report outlines the methodology employed to assess the projects in both databases. Second, the projects’ characteristics are outlined as answers to the aforementioned questions
