Hydro-meteorological risks across Europe negatively impact different sectors of society. Such risks are expected to become worse given projected changes in climate, degradation of ecosystems, population growth, and urbanisation. Nature-based solutions (NBSs) have emerged as an effective mean to minimize impacts in urban and surrounding rural areas. NBS also provides a wealth of social, environmental, and economic benefits. This panel aims to focus on the tools and methods for the demonstration and market uptake of Nature-Based Solutions to reduce hydro-meteorological risks in the region. The session will demonstrate solutions that are inspired and supported by nature, co-developed and co-deployed with citizens and other stakeholders, which are cost-effective, simultaneously provide environmental, social and economic benefits and help build resilience
