Project overview

Climate-proof landscape through renaturing urban areas in Central Europe

Cities are growing in central Europe, often turning green areas into grey concrete places. This urban sprawl accelerates negative effects of climate change such as urban heat islands. The GreenScape-CE project works on reversing the trend by making urban areas greener again. The partnership strengthens planning capacities and pilots the application of nature-based solutions and green infrastructure approaches in five cities, which are significantly affected by urban heat island effects.

Roadmap

1

Challenge:

Urban areas share common challenges, including urban sprawl, extreme weather impacts, pollution, health problems, biodiversity loss, and rising energy demand.

2

Specific Problem:

The aggravating urban heat island effect in five Central European urban areas due to growing urban sprawl and the transformation of green spaces into grey areas.

3

Idea:

To promote climate resilience integration in urban areas through transnational collaboration and knowledge exchange.

4

Solution:

To integrate Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) and Green Infrastructure (GI) into urban areas in Central Europe through transnational cooperation, aiming to address common challenges, benefitting local governments and citizens, and promoting climate resilience integration.

5

How it works:

1. The main beneficiaries, local governments, and citizens, gain from knowledge exchange, enhanced governance, customised capacity-building events, and the positive impacts of NBS pilot actions on well-being and social inclusion. 2. The project actively engages potential replicator cities during its duration, ensuring that lessons learned are disseminated and supporting the expansion of NBS projects beyond the initial pilot areas. 3. Knowledge and findings are shared through transnational collaboration, facilitating the mainstreaming of climate resilience solutions in urban areas by informing policy development and implementation.

6

Proof/credibility:

1. Five NBS/GI action plans 2. Three pilot actions are implemented 3. Two Central European-wide strategies are formulated

7

Vision:

Transformation of urban areas into resilient, sustainable, and environmentally harmonious spaces.
