19 April 2022

The CLEARING HOUSE project announces its first knowledge exchange mechanism.

The global objective of the knowledge exchange mechanism is to promote capacity development and exchange of knowledge and practices on urban forests as nature-based solutions (UF-NbS), based on peer-to-peer exchanges and scientific support regarding UF-NbS challenges. Local authorities implementing nature-based solutions are encouraged to apply to benefit from the knowledge exchange.

The knowledge exchange mechanism is composed of the two paths described below:

  • the City Tandem
  • the Task Force

About the City Tandem exchange mechanism

The global objective of the City Tandem is to promote capacity development and exchange of knowledge and practices on urban forests as nature-based solutions (UF-NbS), based on peer-to-peer exchanges. It aims to foster international links at the local level, enabling local leaders to gain new perspectives on UF-NbS. Local authorities (cities, metropolises or regions) wishing to exchange with another local administration facing similar challenges on planning and managing urban forests are encouraged to apply.

About the Task Force exchange mechanism

The global objective of the Task Force is to offer the opportunity to a selected local authority to receive scientific support regarding UF-NbS challenges from the CLEARING HOUSE experts partners. This support will include a review of the challenge stated, research for gaining more in-depth insight in the challenge in the specific territory of the local authority, and an action plan for implementing the suggested solutions.
