Utilization of private land for mainstreaming nature-based solution in the systemic transformation towards a climate-resilient Europe

LAND4CLIMATE aims to increase the resilience of landscapes and urban settlements in the continental biogeographical area and beyond by nudging the implementation of nature-based solutions (NBS), which are at large-scale still in its infancy.

Therefore, LAND4CLIMATE co-designs and validates NBS on private land through implementation and upscaling with innovative strategies of land policy for a transformative climate-resilient future in areas with multiple risks, especially coupled extreme hydro-meteorological events such as floods, droughts and urban heat in six frontrunner cases with related replicating areas in Austria, Czechia, Germany, Italy, Romania and Slovakia.

LAND4CLIMATE is a mission in the European Horizon Programme (HORIZON-MISS-2022-CLIMA-01-06); the project has a budget of around 13 million Euro. The project is led by Stefan Greiving and Thomas Hartmann.
