A New FAO report Urban forests: a global perspective

Monday, November 06 , 2023 927

FAO published a new report that calls to bridge ‘green social divide’.
Urban forestry is not a one-size-fits-all solution; each city and region, with its own unique set of challenges and opportunities, requires tailored strategies. In recognition of the diversity and distinctiveness of urban forestry issues and their potential for mitigating environmental and socioeconomic inequality across the globe, FAO has asked experts around the world to share their views on how urban forests and trees are perceived and managed in their respective geographical areas, bringing together a broad range of regional perspectives. The primary goal of this publication is to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of urban forestry worldwide. By showcasing the regional perspectives, insights, experiences and case studies in urban and peri-urban forestry (UPF), the report aims at inspiring individuals, communities and policymakers to reimagine their relationships with urban green spaces.

The publication is available at: https://www.fao.org/documents/card/en/c/cc8216en
