The twelfth and final partnership established as part of the EU Urban Agenda relates to Sustainable Land Use and Nature Based Solutions (SLU_NBS). The partnership is jointly coordinated by the Polish Ministry of Investment and Economic Development and the city of Bologna, and has now launched its draft plan. The plan’s content is the subject of a consultation exercise open until September 19 2018. Details at https://ec.europa.eu/futurium/en/sustainable-land-use
The draft plan consists of ten elements (“draft actions”) – five concerning sustainable land use and five which relate to nature based solution – the consultation exercise consists of separate online consultation questionnaires for each of the ten actions. The draft actions are designed to reflect the four priority themes upon which the partnership has decided to focus: Land take; Brownfields and under-used land; Functional Urban Areas, and; Nature-based solutions.
The draft actions contain reference to a number of issues of direct peri-urban interest and PURPLE intends making multiple responses and would be interested in learning of any member regions who plan to do the same.
