Coastal Habitat Restoration and Revitalization
Time: 4 pm (CET)
Coastal ecosystems are of paramount importance in many ways. However, due to land use change, the modification of coastal waterways, trawling and other influences, coastal wetlands are degrading and decreasing rapidly. Nature-based solutions, such as a sustainable use of these ecosystems or the enlargement of flood plains, can contribute to the protection of existing coastal ecosystems as well as to the restoration of degraded ones. In this CITIES TALK NATURE event, two speakers will present examples of coastal habitat restoration and revitalization and share their experiences, challenges and found solutions.
The event is free of charge and is being held in English and Spanish, translation is provided. CITIES TALK NATURE is an event series facilitated by a unique cooperation between the Latin American Federation of Cities, Municipalities and Associations of Local Governments (FLACMA) and the National Union of Local Governments (UNGL), as member of FLACMA as well as Climate Alliance (CA) and United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG). It was developed within the INTERLACE project that aims to empower and equip European and Latin American cities to effectively restore and rehabilitate (peri)urban ecosystems towards more liveable, resilient and inclusive cities.
