City networks call for urgent adoption of Nature Restoration Law

Climate Alliance is joining a group of fellow city networks and partners of the Urban Agenda Partnership on Greening Cities for an open letter to the Heads of State and Environment Ministers. The alliance is calling for the urgent adoption of the Nature Restoration Act, which has recently been repeatedly delayed. Failure to adopt the law would have dire consequences for nature and would set a dangerous precedent.

The EU Nature Restoration Law is an important lever in protecting green spaces and adapting our cities and regions to the impacts of the climate crisis. The Nature Restoration Law would establish a legal framework and objectives that backs approaches by cities to protect and develop urban green space and support collaboration between all levels of government and a myriad of stakeholders for the mental and physical health of citizens.

The open letter is now available online.
