The "Nature in the City Strategy" (2017-2027) aims to create diverse, resilient and healthy urban ecosystems in the City of Melbourne, Australia. In doing so, the city aims to enhance the environment and human well-being and provide the foundation for creating a more livable city with thriving biodiversity. The strategy, which has been co-designed in an extensive stakeholder collaboration process, sets out a series of objectives and priorities to guide the planning, development and management of the city's biodiversity and ecosystems up to 2027. It also includes a set of actions and targets to evaluate the success of implementation. The conservation and restoration of native plants, animals and communities is a priority of this strategy.
