NAIAD is an ambitious attempt, to operationalise the insurance value of ecosystems for water related risk mitigation, by developing and testing concepts, tools and applications on 9 demo sites across Europe, under the common concept of Nature Based Solutions (NBS).
NAIAD is a project aiming to:
- Develop concrete Nature Based Solutions (NBS) approaches in response to flood and drought risks at 9 demo sites across EU,
- Deliver replicable methods for its implementation,
- Work on development of financial instruments and novel business models in support for their implementation,
- Contribute to academic knowledge on NBS planning, increase capacity of policy decision makers to integrate NBS in development planning and contribute to general awareness of need of NBS and socio-economic opportunities arising with their implementation at local, regional or EU level.
