12:00-13:00 (TBC) | Ecosystems and their services for human well-being
The prosperity of mankind depend on the sustainable exploitation of natural capital. The conservation of natural capital stocks guarantees the continuous generation of ecosystem services flows vital for human well-being. Many of these services are overexploited and degraded by human activities. In this context, the increase of the urban population requires the development of planning strategies aimed at strengthening urban and peri-urban forests to improve the provision of ecosystem services. The aim of this workshop is to promote a debate on the importance of these issues, also in relation to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) of the UN 2030 Agenda.
