Addressing the loss of species, habitats, ecosystem health, and genetic diversity.
Living Green in a city provides habitats to support ecological communities for a diverse range of living organisms. Plants provide the backbone for all nature to thrive. City Biodiversity has an increasingly important role to play in global conservation efforts. This category also recognises urban and peri-urban agriculture which contribute to food security, minimum waste, and circular economies for food.
These three cases were finalists for the ‘Living Green for Biodiversity’ category in the 2022 edition of the AIPH World Green City Awards. The winner was Bogotá D.C., Colombia.
