A survey to collect the greater possible number of information about initiatives and projects related to urban vegetation ecosystems. The initiative is launched as part of the European project Life VEG-GAP, which has the main objective of developing a strategy to provide new reliable information, in order to support the design of air quality urban plans, considering the characteristics of urban vegetation ecosystems.
The contribution of all those who deal, or have dealt, with the planning, monitoring or the reporting of these initiatives is, therefore, very important in order to bring order and clarity on the multiple real impacts of urban vegetation ecosystems on cities’ air quality. But even those who simply know or have dealt with this kind of projects can make their own contribution of knowledge.
Projects that make use of Nature-Based-Solution are particularly relevant (NBS - actions to protect, sustainably manage and restore natural or modified ecosystems, which face societal challenges in an effective and adaptive way, while providing benefits for human health and biodiversity).
Therefore, the invitation consists in spending a few minutes of your time to fill out the questionnaire at this link, concerning both projects and initiatives already concluded and still in progress.
The information collected will be really valuable and it will contribute in drawing up the Project Report for the European Commission, which will also be available to the scientific community, political and administrative authorities and citizens.
