Abstract

NATWIP is a project funded under the EU-supported Joint Programming Initiative "Water challenges for a changing world (Water-JPI), which aims to tackle the ambitious challenge of achieving sustainable water systems for a sustainable economy in Europe and abroad. This multi-disciplinary international project aims to contribute to closing the water cycle gap by exploring the potentials that Nature Based Solutions (NBS) offer to address water management challenges in landscape areas that have been neglected because they lie in the transition zones between the urban and the rural, hereby referred to as periurban areas. The main objective is to exchange learning experiences among the partnership and promote the debate between science and society in order to increase awareness among practitioners and users on the application of NBS to manage water scarcity, pollution, and risks related to extreme hydrological events. There are 4 project sub-objectives: (1) review of international experiences on NBS implementation, (2) establish a methodological framework to assess NBS, (3) apply the framework at different case study sites, and (4) create a common narrative. It aims to progress beyond the state of the art where the question of closing the water cycle gap is restricted to urban cores, ignoring the specificities of the peri-urban areas. The innovativeness of the project lies in building and sharing knowledge on the potential of NBSs for water in the peri-urban spaces. The project will include case study sites in Norway, Sweden, Spain, South Africa, India and Brazil, where the project partners will focus on periurban areas.
