Set up your local working group
Having a local working group for the nature-based solutions strategy keeps internal and external stakeholders engaged in the process and ensures that the final strategy includes their input. The working group should include local internal and external stakeholders that will be ultimately involved in strategy implementation. Examples of potential members include municipal departments of urban planning, environment, climate change, green spaces, water management, public infrastructure and others, as well as NGOs, associations and civil society. The group contributes to defining the objectives and scope of the strategy, mapping and engaging stakeholders, and champion the importance of nature-based solutions and the strategy.
