    Monitoring and evaluating Nature-based Solutions : CITIES TALK NATURE Webinar


    Online
    Organiser: Others

    Urban areas are under pressure: Climate change, pollution and the conversion of open spaces threaten human well-being and biodiversity. Cities are increasingly recognising the potential of Nature-based Solutions and striving to restore and protect urban ecosystems. Monitoring and evaluating the multifunctional impacts of Nature-based Solutions are important steps to track the strengths and weaknesses of specific interventions and their performance in particular urban contexts.

    This webinar will orient urban practitioners and stakeholders in evaluating (their) Nature-based Solutions by presenting a monitoring module developed within the INTERLACE project and by providing a practical example from Bogotá’s Botanic Garden.

    • Isabel Melo, Humboldt Institute Colombia, author of the “INTERLACE Pilot Assessment Framework for Restorative Nature-based Solutions”, will introduce the monitoring module of the assessment framework, which helps practitioners to evaluate and oversee Nature-based Solutions projects.
    • Martha Liliana Perdomo, General Director of the Botanic Garden of Bogotá, will share practical experiences in the monitoring and evaluation of Nature-based Solutions.

     

    The webinar is part of the CITIES TALK NATURE events of the INTERLACE project and will this time take place within the framework of Climate Alliance’s Annual International Conference. The event is free of charge and is being held in English and Spanish, translation is provided.
