Title: Exploring the Potential of Using Carbonyl Sulfide to Track the Urban Biosphere Signal / Cities are implementing additional urban green as a means to capture CO2 and become more carbon neutral. However, cities are complex systems where anthropogenic and natural components of the CO2 budget interact with each other, and the ability to measure the efficacy of such measures is still not properly addressed.
Integrated System Analysis
of Urban Vegetation
and Agriculture (URBAG)
Aims to determine to what degree green infrastructures can be a source of sustainable food, reduce environmental impacts, and promote a more efficient use of resources in urban regions.
Funded by the Horizon 2020 European Research Council and hosted by ICTA-UAB.
Title: Optimizing irrigation in urban agriculture for tomato crops in rooftop greenhouses / The rise of population in urban areas makes it ever more important to promote urban agriculture (UA) that is efficient in terms of water and nutrients. How to meet the irrigation demand of UA is of particular concern in urban areas where water sources are often limited.
Green corridors in Barcelona: results from the co-creation of resilient, sustainable and multifunctional green infrastructures18 June 2021
Green corridors (Eixos Verds in Catalan) are urban strips with a high presence of vegetation that cross the urban fabric and link the different areas of the city. Currently, the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB) bares the potential to create more than 750 km.
The cartography of Local Climate Zones (LCZ) of Barcelona has been published in the lcz-generator repository. Elaborated by Joan Gilabert.
