"Connecting policymakers, practitioners, and experts to further mainstream biodiversity considerations into cities and development projects."
The World Bank’s webinar series “Bringing Nature to Cities: Integrated Urban Solutions to Biodiversity Loss and Climate Change” will promote integrated urban solutions for cities to tackle biodiversity loss and climate change. Co-hosted by the Global Platform for Sustainable Cities (GPSC) and the Global Program on Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Resilience, the series of thematic events provide an online knowledge exchange platform connecting policymakers, practitioners, and experts to further mainstream biodiversity considerations into cities and development projects.
Four key themes will be covered during the series: (1) Urban ecological and land use planning for environmental conservation and climate resilience; (2) Urban nature, biodiversity, and carbon neutrality; (3) Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) for climate-resilient cities; and (4) Investing in nature.
The sessions are presented in partnership with the Global Environment Facility (GEF), CBD Secretariat, World Economic Forum, International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), ICLEI—Local Governments for Sustainability, the European Union’s NATURVATION project, Alexander von Humboldt Institute, and Biophilic Cities.
