Title: Climate Change & Urban Forest Policy & Action – International Perspectives
Description: In a time of climate emergency and a call for more climate action, cities play a leading role. This talk focuses on the role of urban forestry in delivering climate across, both in terms of climate change mitigation and adaptation. Drawing on examples from across the world, examples of urban forestry policy, programs, and actions with a strong climate focus will be discussed and analysed from a governance perspective. Opportunities and challenges within these will be highlighted, including potential synergies and trade-offs between different nature-based solutions delivered by urban forestry.
