EKLIPSE Reports :

Nature-based Solutions to Promote Climate Resilience in Urban Areas

EKLIPSE has just published the report from its first request from policy makers for synthesizing available knowledge. The resulting report Nature-based solutions to promote climate resilience in urban areas – developing an impact evaluation framework is now available online.


Understanding Jointly the Purpose of EKLIPSE and How We Can All Make a Difference

This EKLIPSE presentation explains the various important reasons why EKLIPSE is needed, who should get involved and how EKLIPSE works.  


Knowledge Synthesis Methods

The Expert Group on Knowledge Synthesis Methods has been very busy producing this fantastic report on the range of different available methods for knowledge synthesis. The report covers 21 existing methods, together with guidance on their selection, use and development.

These guidance notes very briefly describe each method and list its strengths and weaknesses; they also provide key references and examples of where a method has been used for policy decisions. For the overall context we recommend reading the complete report.

If you have used any of these methods in a policy-making context, please share your experiences on the KNOCK Forum.
