Cities are intrinsically connected and dependent on water resources within and around their basins . Cities can integrate nature into urban infrastructure design .
Approaches such as greening buildings, permeable paving, roadside green infrastructure, parks in the urban landscape and safe flooding spaces for waterways can reconnect people to rainwater as an opportunity rather than a nuisance.

This webinar focuses on the approaches cities are taking to integrate green infrastructure within the urban areas as well as proactive engagement in managing water resources to provide citizens with a connection to nature in urban landscapes and improve the quality of life.
