Nature in the City Project Summary

  • Phase One: Inventory and Assessment (Jan to Sept 2014) – The first year of the project is primarily devoted to data collection and analysis to assess our existing natural assets/gaps from a triple bottom line perspective (economic, social, and environmental).

  • Phase Two: Strategic Plan (Aug to Dec 2014) – The Strategic Plan will include policies and action steps to address the gaps and challenges identified in the inventory and assessment. Short-, medium-, and long-term strategies will be identified.

  • Phase Three: Implementation (Dec 2014 to Mar 2015) – Implementation will include design guidelines, regulatory updates, and incentives to achieve strategic objectives.
