Urban Nature-based Solutions

This publication by WWF and Ecoact aims to share the important role of cities adopting nature targets to help restore the relationship between human and the natural world to realize the promise of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for a net-zero world. In this document eight successful nature-based solutions implemented in cities around the world are explained in order to demonstrate how NbS can deliver multiple benefits to tackle biodiversity loss and the climate crisis while improving urban quality of life. Cities must include NbS in their local climate plans, which are even more powerful when combined with commitments to end deforestation and habitat conversion.
