It allows knowing the indicators value before the planned actions execution and the comparison of the same indicators after the execution of the actions. Therefore, Baseline establishes the starting point of the Project and for every intervention.
Baseline definition begins with a regulations analysis, as well as the challenges and limitations for every Nature Based Solutions (NBS) group.
For the city of Valladolid there have been initially selected 46 KPIs, which include 29 core KPIs. For every KPI and the EKPLISE Challenge it addresses, the type of indicator and measure unit are identified. KPI proposed units show an initial measure method identified for every NBS.
For every KPI, the currently available data sources for calculating the Baseline have been identified, as well as the data sources that do not currently exist but are planned to be considered within the URBAN GreenUP project. KPIs are grouped into technical, economic and social indicators.
