The aim of RENATUR is to draw attention to the importance of peri-urban open spaces and their natural heritage in order to preserve it. An interregional workshop for Hajdú-Bihar County was held on 27th of April 2021 online, to address Hajdú-Bihar County‘s regional development programme for years 2021 – 2027.
The specific challenges tackled during the workshop are the identification of:
a) suitable national/regional/local policy approaches, planning instruments, practical solutions to map ecosystem services (ES) related to a selected area, e.g. a municipality, with special focus on peri-urban open spaces;
b) methods and approaches to translate the role and significance of ES to local decision makers (e.g. mayors, assembly members, etc.) and citizens/local communities;
c) practices, guidance on the development of municipal green infrastructure concept to provide an easily applicable supporting document to decision makers for municipal planning.
