The city of Hamburg and a team of 33 other cities and organizations in Europe, South America and China launched the international European-funded CLEVER Cities project. Cities coordinate and lead the project and will use natural interventions, such as building new green spaces, to address social, economic and environmental problems. The cities will bring in local residents and businesses to collaboratively decide, design and build so-called 'nature-based solutions' in key districts affected by issues like high crime rates, social inequality, unemployment and child poverty.

Connecting Nature

Coordinated by Trinity College Dublin, Connecting Nature is a partnership of 29 organisations from 16 countries which includes local authorities, communities, industry partners, NGOs and academics. The partnership will work with 11 European cities who are investing in multi–million euro large scale implementation of nature–based projects in urban settings. They will measure the impact of these initiatives on climate change adaptation, health and well-being, social cohesion and sustainable economic development in these cities. Innovative actions to foster the start-up and growth of commercial and social enterprises active in producing nature-based solutions and products will also be an integral part of their work.

The systemic use of urban landscapes for food production is a major step towards more sustainable, liveable and healthier cities. EdiCitNet will leverage the substantial benefits that Edible City Solutions effect today at local level and catalyse their replication EU- and world-wide by launching a fully open and participatory network of cities, empowering their inhabitants a) to systematically explore the wealth and diversity of existing Edible City Solutions, and b) to adapt, plan and implement successfully proven Edible City Solutions in their specific urban context. To make this happen, EdiCitNet will close knowledge gaps in the effective implementation of Edible City Solutions and their transformation into sustainable, innovative business models.

The Green and Blue Space Adaptation for Urban Areas and Eco Towns (GRaBS) project is a network of leading pan-European organisations involved in integrating climate change adaptation into regional planning and development. The project resulted in a number of resources, including the vulnerability and risk assessment tool, adaptation action plans developed by the participating local and regional authorities, a database of case studies presenting the use of green and blue space adaptation to climate change in urban areas around the world, and a number of expert papers. All resources are available from the project website.
