A short description of the NBS project
The Association of Landscape Researches and Çankaya municipality have started joint project studies to support urban eco-studies in order to create a sustainable, future-friendly city. Capacity building to implement the rain harvest method with the project, preparation of guidelines on adaptation to climate change and activities in the context of awareness are the results of the project.
The aim of the project is to increase the capacity of the farmers living in the Çankaya countryside in terms of water holding capacity.
