Cities around the world are struggling to provide people with the infrastructure they need to thrive. Nature-based infrastructure delivers cost-effective, climate-resilient infrastructure services and generates a wealth of co-benefits for citizens, such as reduced air pollution and improved well-being. It also creates an enabling environment for other sustainable infrastructure. To maximize the benefits of NBI, the value of nature must be at the heart of strategic, cross-sectoral urban planning.
