Climate resilient biodiverse cities in Latin America and the Caribbean

Source(s):  Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)

This toolkit is aimed to help Latin American Mayors in key decision-makers to include and prioritize biodiversity in their agendas, fostering sustainable and climate-change resilient urban landscapes. The toolkit is composed of 10 steps that offer decision-makers a road map to design strategies that generate tangible benefits from fostering biodiversity in Latin American cities. The rigorous and methodical approach to each of the proposed stages helps to facilitate dialogue, understanding, justification, scope and financing of the various projects that protect and enhance biodiversity.

The recommendations provided in the toolkit (p. 34), are:

  1. Risk management should be integrated into each step of the toolkit as a best practice;
  2. A bold communication strategy should be a transversal axis and should be constantly implemented;
  3. Measuring impacts and success does not only contribute to biodiversity but also to the Sustainable Development Goals agenda;
  4. Projects are only executed if the time and cost estimated are viable, agreed upon and with a formal financing plan.
