The following can be attributable to Ramírez-Lovering:

“Cities are continuing to grow at an extraordinary rate. In order to address the challenges of sustainable urban growth effectively, cities must rethink the way we deliver water, sanitation, and climate-resilient infrastructure. 

“We are working on a number of exciting projects in Indonesia that offer a promising path towards sustainable development - by leveraging the power of ecosystems to address climate challenges, water security, and biodiversity loss.

“For example, the Citarum Program is using an integrative socio-technical approach to create clean, healthy and productive rivers and communities, and the RISE program is implementing nature-based infrastructure to improve living conditions in urban informal settlements.”
