Building urban resilience with nature: a practitioner's guide to action

Source(s):  100 Resilient Cities (100RC)
Earth Economics

This document is intended for the growing community of Chief Resilience Officers and 100RC partners from the private, public and NGO sectors who have recognized the key role that nature and natural infrastructure play in resilience building and are determined to take concrete steps to influence decision-making and mainstream nature-based solutions in their cities. It provides simple, consistent vocabulary and messaging to help practitioners better communicate the value of natural infrastructure to skeptics, but also to help them share important data e build alliances with champions. It includes case studies from cities at the forefront of this movement. It provides recommendations for greater collaboration among Chief Resilience Officers and 100RC partners, and a call to action to spread knowledge, innovate together, and promote change on the ground. 

Ultimately, the goal is to position nature as an asset in strategy development and implementation for all cities, and effect tangible change on the ground. The hope is that the steps outlined in this document will promote collection and sharing of standardized data between cities and 100RC partners and staff, key to identify opportunities and measure impact. Ideally, this cycle of data collection and sharing will further accelerate the reintroduction of nature in our cities, valued in itself and for the services it can provide, in a sustained and fundamental way.
