Urban solutions for a living planet
A global inventory from sustainable urban development
The aim of the Urban solutions project is to support learning about, and action toward sustainable cities. Our vision is a future where we all live well within the capacity of one living planet – in other words, a One Planet Future. WWF's work for sustainable cities is part of our larger efforts to meet global meta-goals of sustainable development.
In this project, WWF has studied and catalogued real examples of how cities are approaching the need to minimize their ecological footprints and protect ecosystem services and biodiversity. We can think of no better motivator than the inspiring examples provided by these learning cases, which highlight how cities are working, in real life and in real time, to reduce their footprints and protect biodiversity and ecosystem services.
