Biodiversity & Nature-based Solutions

In its current form, urbanisation and the lifestyle of city populations is rapidly depleting biodiversity, as well as public and private green spaces.

To create a healthy living environment and to be sustainable, urban development must preserve biodiversity by safeguarding and developing multi-functional and connected green spaces in cities. Green spaces and their ecosystems can act as a nature-based solution to tackle societal, economic, and environmental challenges.

ICLEI is a long-term advocate of the importance of urban biodiversity and green spaces and supports local governments in maintaining and encouraging it. By working with cities to implement nature-based solutions, ICLEI also helps them to improve their resilience and create a cohesive urban society.
