Urban Nature-based Solutions: Living rivers


Rivers are vital to people and nature, and they build resilience to the impacts of climate change. But rivers also function as corridors that connect isolated habitats, reduce urban heat island effects, prevent erosion and provide spaces for wellbeing and recreation.

The transformation of a concrete canal into a meandering river by Singapore Bishan-AMK Park is an inspiring example of an urban nature-based solution that has resulted in reduced flooding, improved biodiversity numbers, and a greater sense of belonging and community. The vegetated banks have also prevented erosion and reduced the impacts of droughts.
