What is the value of nature in our cities and regions?

WORLD BIODIVERSITY DAY 2020: Our solutions are in nature

Nature underpins our very existence and livelihoods, and is integral to the effective functioning and well-being of urban communities. One million species are threatened with extinction today and extinction rates are accelerating.*

The biodiversity crisis exacerbates the parallel crisis of climate change. The destruction of nature both increases the speed that climate change is occurring and prevents us from utilizing what nature offers to help us combat climate change.

Cities and urban communities have a critical role to play in addressing this double crisis.

Nature needs to be protected and integrated into all aspects of urban life to provide the full range of diverse life-supporting and life-enhancing benefits.
