Understanding policy landscapes and integrating policy areas for advancing nature-based solutions
UrbanByNature is continuing capacity building in the South Eastern Europe region!
After a successful launch event on 17 and 18 May in Belgrade, UbN South Eastern Europe is excited to announce the start of a five-part webinar series starting on 4 July. Along the UrbanByNature methodology, participants will be introduced to innovative approaches adopted and implemented by cities and other stakeholders throughout the region. The program is supported by the CLEVER Cities project.
The first session of the UrbanByNature South Eastern Europe webinar series will focus on step 2 of the UbN methodology: EXPLORING existing urban greening policies, plans and regulations to identify gaps and understand local needs. Representing the CLEVER Cities project, McKenna Davis from the Ecologic Institute will provide insights on coherent and coordinated policymaking to ensure objectives between different policy areas are aligned, and reflect on relevant EU policies on nature-based solutions. Adding practical experience from the region, Marija Vilhelm and Adrijana Sesic from the City of Banja Luka will share how spatial development policy mapping and stakeholder coordination contributed to initiating urban forestry protection and forming the Green Belt of Banja Luka. During the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences and address questions to the webinar speakers:
