Villes Durables Méditerranéennes

An EU Research & Innovation (R&I) agenda on nature-based solutions is an essential component to greening the economy and achieving sustainable development. To contribute to the development of this R&I agenda, the Expert Group on 'Nature-Based Solutions and Re-Naturing Cities' was commissioned by the European Commission. Since the nature-based solutions concept is relatively new, the Expert Group developed an appropriate definition, before considering the opportunities for nature-based solutions.

Their final report published in 2015. Four principal goals have been identified that can be addressed by nature-based solutions:
− Enhancing sustainable urbanisation through nature-based solutions can stimulate economic growth as well as improving the environment, making cities more attractive, and
enhancing human well-being.
− Restoring degraded ecosystems using nature-based solutions can improve the resilience of ecosystems, enabling them to deliver vital ecosystem services and also to
meet other societal challenges.
− Developing climate change adaptation and mitigation using nature-based solutions can provide more resilient responses and enhance the storage of carbon.
− Improving risk management and resilience using nature-based solutions can lead to greater benefits than conventional methods and offer synergies in reducing multiple risks.

Based on the four goals, seven nature-based solutions for R&I actions are recommended to be taken forward by the European Commission and Member States:
− Urban regeneration through nature-based solutions
− Nature-based solutions for improving well-being in urban areas
− Establishing nature-based solutions for coastal resilience
− Multi-functional nature-based watershed management and ecosystem restoration
− Nature-based solutions for increasing the sustainability of the use of matter and energy
− Nature-based solutions for enhancing the insurance value of ecosystems
− Increasing carbon sequestration through nature-based solutions


This report was produced by the Horizon 2020 Expert Group on 'Nature-Based Solutions and Re-Naturing Cities', informed by the findings of an e-consultation and a stakeholder workshop.

 

Toute l’équipe du Réseau des Villes Euromed est heureuse de vous annoncer la mise en ligne de son nouveau site internet collaboratif : http://www.reseau-euromed.org

Nous l’avons voulu : pratique d’utilisation; . le plus complet possible; adapté aux attentes et aux besoins des Acteurs du Réseau, que ce soit les 150 villes adhérentes réparties au travers de 27 pays d’Europe et des rives sud et est de la Méditerranée, ou vous-même; être le reflet le plus fidèle possible des ambitions qui nous animent pour relever les défis de demain.

Ce site évoluera et vivra aussi grâce à vous. Vos remarques et suggestions constructives sont donc les bienvenues.

Enfin, n’hésitez pas à faire figurer le lien sur votre propre site.

Bonne découverte.

Plus de 70 % des Européens vivent dans des zones urbaines et 55 % des investissements publics sont réalisés par des administrations régionales ou locales. La Banque européenne d’investissement collabore à une série d'initiatives liées au programme urbain de l'UE afin de partager son savoir avec des décideurs locaux et régionaux en vue d'améliorer l'accès aux financements et de les aider à utiliser plus efficacement les fonds existants.

Ces cinq dernières années, la BEI a prêté 95 milliards d'EUR pour des programmes urbains et elle élargit actuellement ce financement à des projets plus risqués, au titre du Fonds européen pour les investissements stratégiques, qui fait partie du Plan d'investissement pour l'Europe.

Around 20 cities will be selected by the European Commission to share their technical expertise and strategic advice on the Commission’s Urban Water Agenda 2030.

The agenda aims to build on the capacities and political leadership of local governments to advance sustainable water management in Europe. The Commission is looking to work with cities in accelerating the implementation of EU water policies and legislation, such as the EU Water Framework Directive and the Floods Directive.

Urban, demographic and climate trends are increasingly exposing cities to risks of having too little, too much and too polluted water. Facing these challenges requires robust public policies and sound governance frameworks to co-ordinate across multiple scales, authorities, and policy domains. Building on a survey of 48 cities in OECD countries and emerging economies, the report analyses key factors affecting urban water governance, discusses trends in allocating roles and responsibilities across levels of government, and assesses multi-level governance gaps in urban water management. It provides a framework for mitigating territorial and institutional fragmentation and raising the profile of water in the broader sustainable development agenda, focusing in particular on the contribution of metropolitan governance, rural-urban partnerships and stakeholder engagement.
