Cities and Biodiversity Outlook

The scientific foundation of the City and Biodiversity Outlook (CBO) is the world’s first global assessment on the relationship between urbanization and biodiversity loss. The book was produced by Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) together with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), in partnership with UN-Habitat and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and has involved more than 200 scientists worldwide. Many members of URBIO have contributed to the book which is published by Springer as an open access book – that means you will have free access to all papers!

Please find out more about the CBO's Background, it's Action and Policy as well as the Scientific Assessment at the Cities and Biodiversity Outlook's website.
