A PHUSICOS-VR game will be presented at EGU22: EOS1.3 Games for Geoscience, late afternoon Wednesday 25 May. European Geoscience Union has its general assembly in Vienna, Austria 23-27 May 2022.
A spring school on nature-based solutions (NBS) for hydro-meteorological hazard mitigation in rural mountainous landscapes took place from April 2-11 and hosted wide international participation.
This report evaluate the assessment of the effectiveness of Nature-based solutions in reducing risks at the three Demonstrator Cases (DCs) of the PHUSICOS project.
PHUSICOS has launched its new podcast series on nature-based solutions. This provides an introduction to NBS and presents current NBS projects, challenges and findings.
The newly developed PHUSICOS simulation is a serious game. It was developed as part of Work Package 6 on learning innovation and aims to simulate the complex governance setting of stakeholders.
A webinar titled “NBS: Green solutions for the environment. Benefits and opportunities”, was held 30th September with 157 registered contacts, and an average participation of 84 attendees.
PHUSICOS presented how NBS create good environmental governance by engaging all parts of society and to enhance multiple benefits for both humans and nature at the IUCN World Congress.
A WP5 report was presented at the Policy Business Forum 19th April 2021. Three NBS financing models emerged: private, blended and public. They summarise some key messages of the workshop.
A meeting and site visit to the NBS project Erill la Vall gully in Catalunya, Spain with PHUSICOS partners, promoters of the project and local experts took place in late July.
The visit aimed to analyse the extent of problems such as erosion and rock falls affecting the road at both sites, as well as to assess how the nature based solutions will work, as well as discussing other possible technical solutions.
