Urban Governance Atlas


Ecologic Institute 2023: Urban Governance Atlas. Infographic. English and Spanish.

The INTERLACE Urban Governance Atlas was launched in 2023. It invites political decision-makers, urban planners, researchers, civil society organizations, and all interested parties to delve into the success stories of 250 political instruments from 41 countries. These instruments support nature-based solutions and tools for ecosystem restoration. The Atlas aims to showcase what has made them successful, the lessons learned in their design and implementation, and the governance approaches they employ. Developed by the Ecologic Institute, the infographic provides a clear overview of what the Urban Governance Atlas is and who can benefit from it.

The Urban Governance Atlas was developed from February 2021 until May 2023 as part of the INTERLACE project. The process has been coordinated by McKenna Davis and Natalia Burgos Cuevas (Ecologic Institute), with the support of many INTERLACE partners and external contributors.
