S3E20 - Do Nature-Based Solutions Work? These New Case Studies Will Verify It!
with 🎙️ Silvana Di Sabatino, Professor of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Bologna, and coordinator of the OPERANDUM project.
💧 The OPERANDUM Project aims at delivering the tools and methods for the validation of Nature-Based Solutions as a way to enhance resilience in European rural and natural territories by reducing hydro-meteorological risks.
What we covered:
🍏 What Open Air Laboratories are - and how they revisit the concept of Living Labs
🌱 How nature-based solutions are put to work in specific examples, and how they are monitored, evaluated and replicated
🧮 How OPERANDUM may enable and facilitate the market uptake of Blue-Green approaches by working on their business plan and replication packages
🧮 How Computational Fluid Dynamics and numeric models are a strong support to the OPERANDUM research project
🍏 How nature-based solutions are much more than the "Hippie Science" image they may convey
🍏 How important communication, pedagogy, and vulgarisation are for NBS to be widely accepted
🌱 How development stages of blue-green approaches differ from one country to another
🌱 How nature-based solutions induce a shift of paradigm, from CAPEX intensive grey approaches to OPEX intensive blue-green alternatives
🍏 The outlook on nature-based solutions, bringing all the stakeholders together, sharing an open platform, the importance of regulations... and much more!
