The Urban Agenda Partnership on Sustainable Use of Land and Nature-based Solutions (SUL-NBS) is currently implementing nine Actions agreed in the Action Plan. Partners are involved in numerous research activities, exchanges and collaborations, as well as working on guidelines and recommendations.

In 2019, the Partnership was present at many events, including the THINKNATURE Forum, the JPI Urban Europe Policy Conference and an ESPON seminar on FUA. After the summer, there are more opportunities to meet the partners and get involved in the discussions about sustainable land use and nature-based solutions!
