How to discuss desirable scenarios for cities using alternative visions and scenario framework for management of nature in cities? Recognizing multiple values for our relationship with nature in urban settings can help to co-design greener and more sustainable urban futures. This is recent effort led by Andressa Mansur as a result of a collaborative workshop with colleagues from IPBES Scenarios and Models assessment, The Nature Conservancy and urban ecology experts. The publication offers a framework for creating alternative visions for nature in cities through four components, including the leverage points for reinforcing social-ecological feedbacks that draw on co-benefits from multiple nature perspectives, assessment of indirect impacts of cities on biodiversity, development of multi-scale monitoring and development of scenarios for nature in cities. The publication can be found here.
