Abstract Climate change has significant impacts on society and biodiversity. Urban inhabitants are likely to experience climate change impacts most directly because currently around 54 per cent of the world’s population and already 73 per cent of all Europeans reside in cities. Tech-nical solutions are only one aspect of climate change adaptation and mitigation, while nature-based solutions can foster functioning ecosystems as essential backbone to climate mitiga-tion and adaptation. Management that focusses on green infrastructure as measure towards greening cities has the potential to meet several goals across sectors and may also be cost-effective, healthy and sustainable. Nature-based solutions to adaptation and mitigation can therefore help to address both the 2020 targets of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) as well as those of the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
