Project description

English EN

A new urban model to enhance and conserve natural capital

More than 70 % of Europe’s population and nearly 60 % of China’s population live in cities. Societal challenges deriving from this development need mitigation and nature-based solutions (NBS) are promising approaches. They will assist cities to adapt to climate change, to reduce the risk of extreme weather events, and to counteract biodiversity loss and other detrimental effects. The EU-funded REGREEN project will investigate NBS to restore, improve, enhance and conserve natural capital and biodiversity. It will help build climate resilience in cities, improve liveability, and contribute to building inclusive communities, in line with urban priorities. Together with urban planners, citizens and businesses in urban living labs, REGREEN aims to speed up the transition toward equitable, green and healthy cities.
