Urban Natural Assets for Africa: Rivers for Life (UNA Rivers) is implemented by ICLEI’s Cities Biodiversity Center. This cutting edge project is designed to support the daily challenges that local governments in Africa experience around protecting and revitalising their urban natural assets, in particular their river systems. It aims to integrate nature-based solutions into land use planning for increased resilience. Having completed considerable research, consultation and evidence gathering,
MCA were tasked with structuring this into an urban planning and management guideline that could be used and applied at various scales by urban planners, environmental planners and urban managers.
