Join the 5th OPERANDUM #webinar on May 5th (13h20 CET), and learn more about prototyping a novel platform to facilitate community data access, collaboration, and interaction for #NatureBasedSolutions.
Nature-based Solutions (NBS) have proven successful in addressing hydro-meteorological hazards such as floods, landslides, and droughts, and in helping vulnerable communities adapt to climate change. However, public awareness, knowledge, and uptake of NBS are still limited at a wider scale. The newly developed Geospatial Information Knowledge Platform (GeoIKP) launched within the OPERANDUM project aims to address this gap. It essentially serves as a digital hub, open for all, to share NBS-related information, data, frameworks, tools and more.
The GeoIKP can be used to explore various aspects of NBS from the co-creation path and existing practices for addressing local challenges to identifying suitable NBS for a given area. The user-friendly and flexible interface of the GeoIKP caters to both advanced users with a professional interest as well as first-time visitors without any prior knowledge of NBS. The platform builds on data collected and experiences gained through locally adapted solutions within the OPERANDUM pilot sites known as Open-Air Laboratories (OALs), each of which has a unique environmental and socio-economic context.
During this webinar, find out about the GeoIKPs variety of cutting-edge services, interactive tools, customizable functionalities, and extensive data repositories.
