    The impacts of nature-based adaptation measures on both urban flooding and CSOs in Barcelona -green roofs and rain gardens- were simulated considering also future rainfall conditions. The results show that a large scale implementation nature-based adaptation measures in Barcelona can provide significant flood and CSO impacts reductions. - By Luca Locatelli, Beniamino Russo & David Sunyer, Aquatec - SUEZ Advanced Solutions

    New nature-based solutions and technologies are developed on a constant basis around the world. However, the large number of options can create uncertainties for decision-makers. To tackle this situation, RESCCUE has developed a prioritization methodology to support decision-makers. - By María Guerrero-Hidalga, Cetaqua

    RESCCUE project was devised to analyse future urban impacts due to climate change so as to improve the resilience of Barcelona, Bristol and Lisbon. In order to achieve that, future climate projections and changes in different weather extreme events were obtained at a local scale. As RESCCUE found, the temperature will give the most important future changes in extreme values in the three cities. - By César Paradinas, FIC

    The use of nature-based solutions and the greening of urban spaces is a key strategy to improve the resilience of cities. Enhancing the synergy between the green (land and vegetation) and blue (water) urban networks plays a key role in maximising ecosystem services and increasing the city’s resilience to climate and socio-economic changes. - By Luís Mesquita David, LNEC
