RECONECT is part of a task force on Nature-Based Solutions for hydro-meteorological risk reduction, representing four Horizon 2020 Project (RECONECT, OPERANDUMPHUSICOS and NAIAD). The task force is the European joint answer to the global call for the NBS work stream of the Climate Action Summit 2019, bringing as contribution its knowledge and field experience made in areas all around the world (the four projects count together over 30 demonstrators across 22 European countries as well as other continents).

The details of the proposal are available here.

The Climate Action Summit will be held in New York on September 23, with the aim of accelerating actions to reach the Climate Change goals set in the Paris Agreement and sending strong signals to politicians and markets about the need for urgent changes.
