The URBiNAT project, funded by the EU H2020 Programme, focuses on the regeneration of under-served urban neighborhoods through the co-creation of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS). The project has recently achieved a significant milestone: its online Nature-Based Solutions Catalogue is now featured as a Key Exploitable Result on the website of the European Commission Horizon Results Platform.
Khorramabad, one of the URBiNAT Observer Cities in Iran, is a remarkable example of this. Over the past five years, Khorramabad, in coordination with URBiNAT's Frontrunner and Follower cities, has undertaken various activities to engage citizens in the co-selection and co-creation of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS).
Current societal challenges like climate change led to a general agreement that our cities need to become greener and our lifestyles more sustainable. Read the exciting findings from a recent study on the health benefits of green walls as a promising nature-based solution for dense urban areas and street canyons specifically.
