Nature-based solutions

Thematic overview

Working with nature and aligning with its biological cycles enables cities and regions to become more resource-efficient and resilient, while boosting local economies and improving the health and well-being of residents. This theme will explore how solutions inspired and supported by nature can simultaneously address environmental, sociocultural and economic challenges in a cost-effective way.

Taking place right before the ICLEI World Congress 2018 and organized by ICLEI Cities Biodiversity Center, the Urban Nature Forum will convene scientists, urban planners, policymakers, conservationists and other key stakeholders to explore nature as a key tool for more sustainable urbanization.
