As cities and communities around the world scale up efforts to cut emissions and prevent dangerous climate change impacts, one area that is often overlooked is trees and forests.
In this episode of The UN Forest Podcast, urban forester Prof. Cecil Konijnendijk joins Architect Stefano Boeri to help us understand why we need to bring nature back into our cities and how we can do so.
