The case study examples from Nairobi (Kenya), Accra (Ghana), Walvis Bay (Namibia), Cape Town and eThekwini (South Africa), and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) aim to encourage other African (and non-African) cities to become leaders in biodiversity protection and management, and to inform global policy development on urban biodiversity.
