Nature based solutions for urban and territorial resilience

  1. 1. NATURE-BASED SOLUTIONS FOR URBAN AND TERRITORIAL RESILIENCE Christos Fragakis, Deputy Head of Unit, Sustainable Management of Natural Resources, DG Research and Innovation Work Programme 2016-2017 Information Day 21 September 2015
  2. 2. Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) Definition (1/2) Nature-based solutions (green and blue infrastructure, green roofs and vertical walls, natural water retention measures, salt marshes and dunes, floodplains etc.): •Are Multi-purpose, multi-functional and multi- beneficial, inspired and supported by nature; •Use the properties and functions of ecosystems to provide ecosystem services (water regulation, flood risk protection, climate change adaptation, etc.) => living solutions;
  3. 3. Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) Definition (2/2) • Are designed to bring more nature and natural features and processes into cities, landscapes and seascapes, through systemic interventions => engineered solutions; => NO bio-mimicry, NO bio-materials
  4. 4. Objective of the initiative • Provide EU-wide evidence and develop a European reference framework about cost-effectiveness of NBS and their longer- term social, economic, cultural and ecological benefits; • Develop new business, governance and financial models, protocols and standards and methodologies for their replication and upscaling to fit to different contexts; • Mobilise new investments and promote their up-scaling and large-scale deployment; • Remove barriers and support better regulations, policy and decision making at EU, national, regional and local level; • Promote international co-operation and contribute to creation of a global market for these solutions (supporting both supply and demand)
  5. 5. SCC-02-2016: Demonstrating innovative nature- based solutions in cities (IA): NBS for climate and water resilience in cities (Cross-cutting call 'Smart and Sustainable Cities) Area of intervention •Pertinence of area of intervention (city, district, town, neighbourhood etc.) will be assessed against:  Impact of intervention in addressing the challenge for the larger city context;  Replicability and scalability potential of the systemic approach (solution, business, governance and finance models, participatory processes and social innovation);
  6. 6. Demonstrating innovative NBS for climate and water resilience in cities (1/3) Implementation modalities •Large scale multi-stakeholder ‘living labs’ demonstration projects; •'Front-runner' and 'follower' cities approach (at least 2 'front- runner' and 3 'follower' cities from MS and/or AC); •'Front-runner' cities as ‘living labs’ that:  invest, deploy, test, demonstrate NBS/city re-naturing;  mentor, assist and advise ‘follower’ cities;  Contribute to EU-evidence repository on NBS; •'Follower' cities commit to develop, within the duration of the project, an urban re-naturing plan replicating demonstrated NBS 'customised' to their context
  7. 7. Demonstrating innovative nature-based solutions for climate and water resilience in cities (2/3) Elements no to be overlooked by proposals Proposals should provide evidence about: •systemic trans-disciplinary approach with multi-level innovation, e.g. technological (nature-based), business, finance and governance models, participatory processes and social innovation); •long-term political and financial commitment; •mobilisation and leveraging of investments securing adequacy and sustainability of financing; •Effective 'mentoring' by 'front-runners' to ‘followers’;
  8. 8. Demonstrating innovative nature-based solutions for climate and water resilience in cities (3/3) Elements no to be overlooked by proposals •Effective documentation and dissemination of the re-naturing 'paradigms' and their impacts; •A well-defined “baseline” at the time of the proposal (or early stage of the project) for proper assessment of the impact of the “intervention”; •Robust monitoring and documentation: at least 2 years within the project; longer term commitment will count favourably for the proposal; •Effective clustering with other NBS-relevant projects
  9. 9. SCC-03-2016: new governance, business, financing models and economic impact assessment tools for sustainable cities with nature-based solutions (urban re-naturing) (RIA) • Based on existing evidence, recommend innovative business, finance and governance models; • Develop methodologies, tools, protocols, standards, indicators ……. to characterize NBS and assess their cost- effectiveness and performance in time; • Develop tools, models, strategies, ……. for replication, upscaling and systemic integration of NBS in sustainable urban planning; • Identify barriers and recommend ways to overcome them; • Effective clustering with demonstration projects for mutual support and “validation" of results;
  10. 10. SCC-04-2016: Sustainable urbanisation (ERA- NET Cofund) • To align JPI Urban Europe’s and Belmont Forum’s R & I agenda on sustainable urbanization • Launch one joint call, co-funded by H2020, on sustainable urbanization and ensure proper co-ordination with relevant activities initiated by Belmont Forum
  11. 11. Nature-based solutions for territorial resilience SC5-09-2016: Operationalising insurance value of ecosystems (RIA) • Enhance understanding of the “sustained capacity of ecosystems to reduce or eliminate risks to human society and economic activities due to global change and/or natural hazards” (insurance value of ecosystems) • Develop methodologies, conceptual frameworks and models for quantification, qualification and valuation of insurance value of ecosystems to enable its full operationalization and mainstreaming into risk reduction strategies.
  12. 12. SC5-10-2016: Multi-stakeholder dialogue platform to promote innovation with nature to address societal challenges (CSA) (1/2) •Establish a platform for science, policy, business and society interactions to underpin the implementation of EU R&I policy initiative on NBS and cities re-naturing; •Support the creation of EU-wide evidence repository and a European reference framework for NBS and speed up their market up-taking; •Facilitate the development of partnerships for testing and deploying NBS; •Identify NBS relevant domains for further Research and Innovation;
  13. 13. SC5-10-2016: Multi-stakeholder dialogue platform to promote innovation with nature to address societal challenges (CSA) (2/2) • Identify potential barriers and propose ways to overcome them; • Foster international cooperation, in particular with key strategic international partners (e.g. Latin America, Belmont Forum, South East Asia).
  14. 14. Cost Eligibility • Standard rules of Annotated Model Grant Agreement; • Depreciation for equipment/good and infrastructure/asset depends on the type and shall follow international, national, institutional accounting principles and usual practises; • Eligible costs estimation will account for the depreciation and the percentage of use of the "equipment" and "infrastructure" for the project;
