Urban Nature-based Solutions: What are they and why are they so important?
Did you know that urban areas account for 70% of global CO2 emissions? With over half of the world’s population living in cities, urban areas contribute significantly to climate change and the loss of biodiversity.
Luckily, if planned well, cities present unique opportunities to reduce humanity’s environmental impact, and meet human needs more efficiently.
In this video series WWF explores a variety of urban nature-based solutions (UNbS) as they are implemented to protect and restore natural systems while benefiting citizens. Enjoy exploring these inspiring examples! #WWFunbs
