Climate Action in Megacities. From Technogenic Landscape to Sustainable Environment

17 July

More and more cities are experiencing the effects of climate change, mostly in the form of heat waves. The main and most effective response to climate change is landscaping, planting greenery, and developing water infrastructure. Moscow has always been a green city, but the latest projects to develop parks and replant trees on the streets in the city center, along with new plans to revitalize the Moscow riverfront are bringing the city’s green status to a whole new level. In addition, Moscow is actively accumulating the best practices in urban planning and up-and-coming technological solutions that can help to reduce the negative effects of climate change.
