The report informs the on-going design, implementation and maintenance of NBS interventions, as well as help structure and guide future investment in NBS
This report uses a ‘Process Chain’ to provide signposts for stakeholders (e.g. city planners, consultants) and to structure decision-making. This mechanism outlines the conceptual chain-links that guide NBS the integration of policy, legal requirements, thematic design principles and local needs assessment leading to more effective implementation. The process also provides guidance on when and how KPI metrics and targets should be set, although these will be reflective of local contextual analysis, i.e. of local socio-economic, ecological and political factors.
The process outlined focuses on the first four components of the chain-links: policy structures, governance structures, local environmental context and thematic development objectives. The aim is to provide a scalar analysis of what municipal governments and other urban actors must take into consideration when deciding on how to approach their NBS vision(s).
