The overall objective of Work Package 3 (WP3) is to monitor and evaluate the measured performance and assess the potential impacts of nature-based solutions (NBS) in front-runner cities, using key indicators of performance (KPIs) and impact (KIIs) as well as a systemic decision support tool (SDST) to underpin and support the co-creation of NBS in the face of global change (in particular population growth and climate change). Specific objectives of WP3 are:
• To co-develop and co-implement a monitoring and evaluation scheme that facilitates evaluation of the measured performance and impact of NBS in front-runner cities, thereby building on KPIs and KIIs (with WP2, 4 and 5);
• To co-implement a SDST in front-runner cities that facilitates the assessment, visualisation and discussion of potential social, environmental and economic impacts of no-action as compared to deployment of NBS in a range of population growth and/or climate change scenarios (with WP2, 4 and 5); and,
• To synthesise and quantitatively assess measured and potential NBS performance and impacts, evaluate co-developed monitoring and impact assessment protocols, and identify technological barriers to NBS operation in front-runner cities.
