By 2050, more than 70% of humanity will live in cities. As people migrate towards urban centers, biodiversity is increasingly under threat. 

Bobcat Skid Steer Control Wiring “Cities are hubs of social connection, economic vitality, and innovation,” said Anne Guerry, lead author on the brief and chief strategy officer and lead scientist for the Natural Capital Project. “Nature supports all of these things, but traditional urban planning doesn’t fully recognize it.”

The initiative aims to better support municipal leaders with practical tools and approaches to solving urban challenges with nature-based solutions, like creating healthier communities by increasing access to green space, addressing inequities in urban heat islands by planting trees in neighborhoods that lack shade, or tackling sea-level rise by guiding floodwaters to natural areas.

We aim to bring nature into urban planning so that we can design cities that are more sustainable, more equitable, and more enjoyable places to live.”

Right now, say the authors, there is a significant opportunity for those leaders to make decisions that will safeguard the well-being of city dwellers and the natural systems on which they depend.
