The UrbanByNature programme was conducted in the Caucasus by Geographic, a Georgian geospatial solutions company, and the Centre for Ecological-Noosphere Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia (CENS), in collaboration with ICLEI Europe.
The programme discussed the right steps for systematically planning and implementing nature-based interventions in an urban context, with special attention to the needs and priorities of cities in Georgia and Armenia. Despite the geographic focus on the Caucasus, participation in this regional hub of the programme is open to all who are interested and familiar with nature-based solution (NBS) planning and implementation, including co-creation, impact indicators and nature-based entrepreneurship.
In addition to the capitals of Tbilisi (Georgia) and Yerevan (Armenia), the Georgian cities of Batumi, Poti, Kutaisi and Mtskheta have also been active contributors to UrbanByNature.
