IFLA Europe is proud to inform you that our delegate Leor Lovinger from ISALA, as a member of EU Expert Working group has contributed significantly to scientific Report prepared by the EU Funded project EKLIPSE and the Expert Working Group on Nature-based Solutions to promote climate resiliance in urban areas.  The Report “An impact evaluation framework to support planning and evaluation of nature-based solutions projects” is focused on three objectives:

1)  To develop an impact evaluation framework with a list of criteria for assessing the performance of NBS in dealing with challenges related to climate resilience in urban areas;
2)  To prepare an application guide for measuring how  NBS projects  fare against the identified indicators in delivering multiple environmental, economic and societal benefits;
3)  To make recommendations to improve the assessment of the effectiveness of NBS projects, including the identification of knowledge gaps according to the criteria presented in the impact evaluation framework.
