Nature provides many diverse life-supporting and life-enhancing contributions to people in cities and their surrounding regions. These gifts from nature make human life both possible and worth living. People need clean air, clean water, nutritious food and attractive and safe places to work, live and play. Nature’s benefits can be diminished and even lost from cities as they grow, yet they are essential for resilience, human survival and well-being.
