The NATURVATION project aims to understand what is needed to unlock the potential of nature-based solutions for more sustainable urban development. As part of this project, the GLOBIO team in collaboration with the Centre of Environmental and Climate Research (CEC) has collated and synthesized literature reporting on ecosystem services delivered by urban nature-based solutions, with the ultimate aim of establishing quantitative relationships that can be used to map urban biodiversity and ecosystem services in cities. A first version of the database with the literature data collected is made available online through the GLOBIO website.
