Fostering Urban Biodiversity through Local Actions
Three-quarters of the earth’s natural resources are consumed in urban areas, and as urbanization continues to rapidly increase around the world, the role of cities in the massive erosion of biodiversity cannot be denied. Urban expansion has led to soil sealing and destruction of habitats, and the consumption patterns of urban dwellers have caused pollution and environmental degradation. In short, cities are key to resolving the biodiversity crisis.
