Cities are growing—fast. By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in urban areas.
Cities are expanding their footprint at an alarming rate, putting habitat, human health and access to food and water at risk. But with smart planning, science-based solutions and strong partnerships, The Nature Conservancy is working to make our cities resilient, healthy and equitable.
