Nature4Cities, a Multicriteria Nature Based Solution Platform Tool to Support the Green Transition


The N4C project aims to develop a scientific and technical database and operational tool for the effectiveness of Nature Based Solutions applied in a framework which considers a holistic approach and, which integrates multiple stakeholders. It intends to produce knowledge and to empower urban projects stakeholders (involved in urban planning/design/management intervention) to take decision. It addresses scientists, urban decision makers, practitioners, and citizens.

Nature4Cities project is based on:

• the building of a NBS knowledge base and associated, integrated analysis framework

• the development of a holistic assessment methodology exploring technical, governance, business, financing models and economic aspects.

• the adaptation of existing technologies for citizen’s participatory engagement, urban data acquisition and urban data management

• the co-development and assessment of actual NBS projects and strategies with Partner Cities

The N4C research team is an interdisciplinary and international team (from 9 countries). The consortium partners take a pro-active part in the EU dynamics of R&D&I, at the crossing of urban green infrastructure planning and construction sector, environmental assessment, social sciences, innovation management and Information and Communication Technology supporting tools.
