What a perfect time to delve into Nature Based Solutions, especially during the ongoing #EUGreenWeek!
We’re currently meeting in Barcelona to talk about the Besòs river case study site to discuss initial requirements, challenges and concerns around the implementation of Nature Based Solutions at this location such as floating wetlands. Within the UPWATER project, we will explore how floating wetlands can mitigate pollution.
WHY THE BESÒS RIVER?
The Besòs River plays an important role in replenishing Barcelona´s groundwater yet its high pollution is not only threatening aquatic life but also the cities´ drinking water supply. The EU Horizon project UPWATER will test Nature Based Solutions to mitigate the pollution of the Besòs river and groundwater in order to sustain clean drinking water for current and future generations.
