Plan monitoring & data
Monitoring the impacts of your nature-based solutions strategy is critical for building support for its continued implementation. It is also an important step in adaptive planning – ensuring that the lessons learnt from the impact of this strategy feed into its next iteration. The framework for assessing the strategy’s impact can be integrated with smart city data systems, in line with international best practice and standards.
Example: Monitoring and managing data in Valencia.
