Participatory Modeling for Nature-based Solutions in the WIO-Region (PaMoNBS)

Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT); Institute of Marine Sciences (IMS) University of Dar es Salaam - Tanzania


PaMo-NBS will provide policy makers with decision support tools to improve the implementation and planning of nature-based solutions and to identify needs and scenarios of an optimised use of local ecosystems for and with local communities in the Western Indian Ocean region.

The primary outcome of this project will be the development of a decision support system that will give local decision makers the opportunity to engage coastal communities. The project aims to produce both a framework for local policy makers and coastal communities to develop a shared understanding of the role of the interconnected socio-ecological systems in providing NbS as well as concrete examples of pilot studies.
