About Londrina, Brazil

Located at the state of Paraná, South of Brazil, Londrina is undergoing a process of recognition as a metropolitan region and enhancement of the regional identity. As a central issue, the city has faced extreme climate events related to water, such as recurring floods, and INTERACT-Bio is supporting decision makers to bring the concept of Nature-Based Solutions to the table and encourage the recognition and implementation of such practices in the new policy. To achieve this goal, demonstration projects will support the revitalization of valley bottoms, demonstrating the potential of Nature Based Solutions as mitigation strategies.
