Urban forests: challenges and benefits

According to the IPCC, 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from urban areas. With pollution, artificialization, heat waves and shrinking biodiversity, cities have become the symptom of a world that is running out of steam, reflecting development that is disconnected from the living world. While more than half of the world's population live in cities, it is becoming urgent to rethink urban planning, to (re)integrate plants, to recreate a natural balance. Therefore, the urban forest represents a tremendous opportunity to go beyond our conception of today's city to build the city of tomorrow.

EU Forest Strategy for 2030: a strong environmental path

The European Commission just released on Friday 16 July its new EU Forest Strategy. This Strategy supplements the Fit for 55 Package (published on 14 of July) and will contribute to achieve the EU’s target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from 55% by 2030, as set out in the European legislation on Climate. This new ambitious strategy “recognises the central and multi-functional role of forests, and the contribution of foresters and the entire forest-based value chain for achieving by 2050 a sustainable and climate-neutral economy while ensuring that all of ecosystems are restored, resilient, and adequately protected.”
