Connecting Nature aims to support cities in securing financing to support the large-scale implementation of nature-based solutions. Within a relatively short period of three years, Connecting Nature has had a major impact in raising the knowledge and awareness of partner cities about alternative financing and business models for large scale implementation of nature-based solutions. The cities have used this knowledge to instigate long-term systemic change within their own organisations. Significant progress has been made in putting in place strategies, programmes, plans, practices, legal and regulatory frameworks to underpin long term co-financing and co- governance of nature-based solutions. This report provides an update on the progress of three Connecting Nature city partners in securing financing for large-scale nature-based solution exemplars in their city: Genk (BE), Glasgow (UK), Poznan (PL).
