President Biden's American Jobs Plan lays out a path to build back better (BBB) grounded in justice and climate solutions through a $2 trillion investment. While the plan relies heavily on the built environment, cities across the world continue to advance climate solutions, economies, health and equity through nature.

The Cities Biodiversity Center, embedded in the ICLEI Africa Secretariat and the focal point for subnational action in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will help to provide a vision of what American cities could look like if the U.S. were to sign on to the CBD and elevate nature in its BBB plan.
