Healing our Cities Naturally: A study of planning and policy for nature-based solutions in Oslo and London

Through the study of planning policies in two European capital cities, this dissertation argues that if planning policy reflects the many benefits associated with nature-based solutions, cities could be transformed into settlements that better nurture human physical and mental well-being, while mitigating climate change and improving biodiversity.
