Save the date for the 1st of June 2023 from 11:00-12:00 CEST, Water Europe will host the 4th ARSINOE seminar on the topic of “How can NBS support climate-change adaptation and mitigation in the water sector? This seminar will be chaired by the Water Europe Working Group on Nature-based Solutions led by Kamal Azrague and Frédéric Cherqui, and will feature a panel of experts from the sister projects TRANSFORMAR, IMPETUS, and REGILIENCE.

As the effects of climate change continue to intensify, it is more important than ever to adopt and implement actions to limit emissions of greenhouse gases and integrate climate-resilient strategies into long-term development programs. This seminar will focus on the role of nature-based solutions (NBS) in mitigating and adapting to climate change in the water sector, with a particular emphasis on urban stormwater management.

The discussion will showcase the diversity of solutions available today at the city scale and explore lessons learned and current limitations to the development of NBS. By fostering knowledge transfer and exploitation, this seminar aims to contribute to achieving a water-smart society that ensures access to water, sanitation, and hygiene for all. Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to learn about the potential of NBS in addressing climate change challenges in the water sector.
