Room 2.42
Mon, 10:45
The focus of this meeting will be on showcasing the innovative approaches and findings of the EIFFEL project in utilizing nature-based solutions (NbS) to address climate change challenges. This session aims to highlight the project's efforts in leveraging Earth Observation (EO) technologies, advanced analytics, and data integration tools to understand, monitor, and enhance the efficacy of nature-based interventions.

Participants will explore how the Pilot Applications & EIFFEL Horizontal Tools Suite supports the design, implementation, and evaluation of NbS by providing key insights into ecosystem services, biodiversity, and the socio-economic benefits of such solutions. The session will feature presentations on successful case studies, methodologies for assessing NbS impacts, and discussions on integrating these solutions into climate adaptation strategies.

The splinter meeting will serve as an opportunity for researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders to engage in knowledge exchange, discuss challenges and opportunities, and foster collaborations for advancing the use of NbS in climate change adaptation. Through this session, the EIFFEL project aims to contribute to the broader discourse on sustainable, resilient, and inclusive approaches to climate adaptation, in line with global sustainability goals and the European Green Deal.
