MEGACITIES 2050: From urbanization risks towards sustainable urban development

Urbanization is a long-term global trend, responsible for substantial environmental changes. At the same time, urban ecosystems are vulnerable and their adaptation to the ever-changing environment is necessary to sustain essential functionality and important ecosystem services. Sustainable urban development demands the integration of innovative green technologies and nature-based solutions in urban management, which is only possible through a collaboration and participation of all stakeholders including scientists, landscape designers, civil engineers, policy makers, and all citizens. © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.
