REGREEN OBJECTIVES

  • 01:Integrate knowledge and evidence on benefits from NBS

    REGREEN will review and assess evidence, experience and good practices of NBS, including potential positive as well as negative side effects. REGREEN will capitalise upon existing knowledge in Europe as well as in China, while focusing on how the NBS address key challenges facing urban areas, such as climate change resilience, biodiversity loss, and social equity. The project will analyse green and blue infrastructure extensively, also reflecting their socio-spatial configuration, and investigate urban populations’ accessibility, interaction with, and experience of, their natural environment and effects on health and wellbeing. Moreover, we will assess the multiple benefits and values of ecosystem services that good practice NBS provide. (WP2, WP3, WP4; WP5; contributing to Expected impacts (EI 1,2).
