About the project

Improvement of urban public policies by developing European regional action plans on nature in cities, linked to ecological connectivity and socio-economic solidarity with peri-urban natural areas.
The project will :
- Organize city-based resilience facing climate change : enabling urban matrix to become permeable to species through a strengthened ecological network between cities and peri-urban protected areas (PUPAs). This ecological network could also benefit PUPAs so that mutual connectivity is strengthened.
- Improve ecological connectivity between cities and PUPAs relying on ecosystem services; This will also improve socio-economic solidarity between cities’ centers and peri-urban natural areas.
- Capitalize on methodologies developed through several PAs management plan and ecological connectivity strategies in Europe as well as spatial planning. Capitalize and valorize scientific research about nature in cities.
