Environment : optional sectoral module (English)

In a resilient city, environmental considerations are effectively mainstreamed into sectoral plans, programs, and investments (coordinated). Stability of the urban ecosystem is maintained through guided growth and implementation of environmental regulations (robust). Environmental protection agencies monitor changes to the environment are able to take early action to prevent environmental degradation (reflective). In a resilient city, natural resources and ecosystems are managed as public goods, including beyond municipal boundaries, and are used to buffer impacts of shocks and stresses (robust and coordinated). Accessibility and knowledge about effective use of ecosystem services is encouraged among the poor as a means of reducing food scarcity and improving livelihood options (redundant and inclusive).
