CLEARINGHOUSE “Collaborative Learning in Research, Information-sharing and Governance on How Urban forest-based solutions support Sino-European urban futures”. Cofinançat per la Comissió Europea H2020 i Xina (2019-2022)

Trees bring shade, mitigate temperature, rainfall and wind, and provide food and fodder for animals. Planting trees in cities is key to resilient cities but many areas lack adequate green infrastructure. The EU-funded CLEARING HOUSE project, with partners from China and Europe, will investigate the role of urban forests as nature-based solutions (UF-NBS), which refers to all measures a city can take to address urban sustainable development challenges by planting and managing trees. It will provide evidence and tools to achieve the full potential of UF-NBS. Its aim is to assist city planners, business and civil society in implementing UF-NBS.
