Support uptake & scale up of Nature-Based Solutions
Resilience Brokers has been working closely with EIT Climate-KIC to develop and support Nature Based Solution uptake by connecting cities, researchers and experts to support innovative national and international scale up of Nature-Based Solutions.
The ACT on NBS (Adaptive Cities through Nature Based Solutions) project aims to increase NBS uptake through connecting cities, researchers and experts to support innovative national and international scale up of Nature-Based Solutions. It is establishing a knowledge-sharing platform to facilitate small teams to actively manage the community, build capacity and provide technical assistance to accelerate the uptake of NBS within municipalities.
Resilience Brokers has been working closely with EIT Climate-KIC to develop and support this innovation ecosystem. By bringing together key stakeholders from Resilience Brokers and EIT Climate-KIC’s communities, this innovation ecosystem will be developed to create a space for the development of existing initiatives to rapidly upscale the application of NBS within cities.
Between 16th-18th September University Polytechnic Madrid hosted a two day series of workshops, visits and meetings. This included a webinar on how cities can become ‘learning cities’ with our partners Jearni (video here), as well as a visit to the Cyborg Garden at the Matadero Madrid, a conversation between artists and scientists on climate change.
