A novel typology for urban forests as nature-based solutions – Workshop

Join the workshop organised by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and European Forest Institute to discuss the novel typology for Urban forests, urban green and urban trees

About this event

The typology on urban forests as nature-based solutions (UF-NBS) is intended to provide grounding knowledge on UF-NBS for within the CLEARING HOUSE project, and beyond the project’s scope. This knowledge—i.e., the elements to be described in the project’s typology—is diverse, as CLEARING HOUSE focuses on Europe as well as China, and thus wants to assume a broad perspective on UF-NBS.
