The National Plan for Adaptation to Climate Variability and Change Cities (PNA Cities) is a strategic instrument aimed at increasing the adaptive capacity of Uruguayan cities to the impacts of climate change through the promotion of planned development. One of the objectives of the Cities NAP is to strengthen the protection and restoration of ecosystems in urban planning and to enhance the role of vegetation in public spaces in cities. It includes 41 sustainable urban development measures to be developed until 2025. The measures are recommendations that were developed together with the implementing government institutions. The NAP was established under the Cancun Adaptation Framework at COP16 (2010) and generates guidelines for cities to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2050.
