NATURA: Nature-based solutions for Urban Resilience in the AnthropoceneWe are pleased to announce a new project extending the work of the UREx SRN. The Accel-Net project, NATure-based solutions for Urban Resilience in the Anthropocene (NATURA), offers opportunities for UREx members to participate in global working groups and learning exchanges.
NATURA is a network of 26 networks in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North and Latin America working toward collaborative, global solutions that are based on nature-preserving protective ecosystems, incorporating ecological elements or even mimicking nature in built infrastructure. These solutions offer flexibility in the face of changing conditions and provide multiple benefits to society, often at relatively low cost.
Through all-hands meetings, thematic working groups, regional nodes, monthly webinars, learning exchanges, and synthesis writing workshops, NATURA will accomplish the goals of synthesis and data sharing, network coordination, and multimodal mentorship. Learning exchanges are a feature of the network of networks focused on early-career researchers and practitioners. NATURA learning exchanges include five-week visits for faculty, postdocs, or practitioners and 15-week visits for graduate students from U.S. institutions to network partners around the globe. Through collaborative, transnational multi-modal mentoring with partners, international students will be invited to participate in these exchanges, hosted by US networks.
