INBO contributions to the Urban Governance Atlas

Research output: Other contributionOnline publication - Web publication


The Urban Governance Atlas (UGA) is an interactive online database of over 250 good practice policy instruments that support nature-based solutions and ecosystem restoration. The UGA allows users to explore a diversity of different policy instrument types being applied across the world. It particularly focuses on the factors making the instruments successful, lessons learned in their design and implementation, and their approaches to governance, such as stakeholder involvement, institutional arrangements and participatory methods utilised.

The Urban Governance Atlas was developed as an output of the INTERLACE project and lead by Ecologic Institute. The web application was developed by OPPLA. A total of 48 organisations contributed to the reporting of policy instrument entries from 41 countries.

INBO contributed with 16 entries from Flanders, Belgium (14) and the Netherlands (2), with support from multiple regional and local organisations providing their input and feedback (ANB, VMM, Departement Omgeving, stad Genk, stad Gent, Groene Gevels, Bomencharter, Frank Lee). On the right side of this page you can find a list of hyperlinks to the respective policy instruments.
