Workshop with Horizon 2020 SC5 programme committee representatives and Member States and Associated Countries (MS/AC) experts NATURE BASED SOLUTIONS 2 June 2017 9:00-16:00 (CDMA building, SDR1-2, Rue du Champ de Mars, 21, Brussels) Purpose of the workshop - To strengthen an informal but targeted dialogue on NBS between MS/AC and Commission services. It should increase the shared awareness, understanding and ownership of and engagement in a NBS R&I Roadmap for the promotion, upscaling and mainstreaming of NBS into policies and operations at various scales. MS/AC representatives' views and inputs on the way forward in consulting on the NBS Roadmap would also be much welcomed. Participants should discuss practical solutions on how to better inform on, steer and finance nature-based solutions at and between EU and national/ regional levels. This could help answer questions such as how far initiatives at EU, national and regional levels can facilitate local implementation of NBS? It would also be a means to learn from MS/AC experiences with the decision-making, funding, set-up and implementation of NBS in their respective countries and regions. This includes identifying good examples as well as less good ones, what works and what does not, which are the enablers and which are the barriers, to progress from testing innovation into implementation, or to integrate the NBS concept into multiple sectors and scale of governance. Finally, this workshop can be an opportunity to promote networking and collaboration among MS/AC and with the Commission, including through the existing projects and platforms on NBS.
