Despite the growing demand for nature-based solutions (NBS) in cities, many people who make planning, financing, and technical decisions for urban resilience building have little knowledge of when and how to build with nature. It creates a need for better guidance, more real-world examples that illustrate how such approaches have worked, and technical assistance to help support more cities identify potentially viable nature-based investments that help cities address resilience challenges. Thus, this Catalogue of Nature-based Solutions for Urban Resilience was created as a resource for those aiming to shape urban resilience with nature. The Catalogue was jointly launched by the Global Program on Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Resilience and the City Resilience Program, both housed in the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR).
