Nature-based solutions to improve people’s lives
Thrive is a guide on how to achieve the most with limited resources. It is a step-by-step guide on how to implement 60 nature-based solutions for the protection and sustainable use of natural assets in cities across sub-Saharan Africa that can help improve people’s lives. The app houses solutions that can be achieved by an individual or community, at the local scale. The solutions are divided into six themes: restoring soil, saving water, rehabilitating green spaces, producing food gardens, sustainable cooking and energy, and preventing disease and disaster.

Learn more about the new app; the science behind nature based solutions; and the programme Urban Natural Assets for Africa: Rivers for Life – a collaboration between ICLEI Cities Biodiversity Center and SwedBio/Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University.
