About Urban Nature Program
The Urban Nature Program will advance the call to action for "Nature Positive Development in cities and regions”. This program will provide financial and technical assistance to accelerate investments in nature in urban areas. The initiative showcases lighthouse cities that exemplify global leadership and will build a pipeline of ambitious cities that intend to leverage green urban infrastructure and nature-based solutions to address the impacts of climate change.
The Program will be co-led by the World Bank through its Global Platform for Sustainable Cities (supported by the GEF), the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) as part of the UN Decade on Ecosystems Restoration, and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability in partnership with the World Resources Institute, International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), C40 Cities and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). The program is supported by the High-Level Climate Champions.
