Estonina University of Life Sciences is opening a PhD position 'Ecosystem disservices in cultural landscapes: evaluation, monitoring and integration to spatial planning'. It is aiming to explore ecosystem diservices in urban environments, including in the locations of the URGENT project.
The consultation workshop (National Institute of Urban Affairs, New Delhi, 14 December 2022) aims at forming an effective national Stakeholder Interactive Platform (SIP) bringing different stakeholders for developing understanding, awareness and shared agendas.
The Special Issue ""Frontiers in Ecosystem Services: Planning the Changing Urban Landscapes" (editors, Viviana Pappalardo, Daniele La Rosa, University of Catania, Italy) aims to cover the latest frontiers in managing ecosystem services to support real-life decision-making processes at the levels of spatial planning, urban policymaking, and urban landscape design, in light of current challenges faced by cities worldwide.
We have finished the development of the URGENT URBAN-learn collaborative learning platform that is fully available now in the user mode. The platform is the first stop for accessing URGENT curriculum deliverables and for sharing them between project partners.
Dr. Daniele La Rosa (University of Catania) participated at the Seminar “Urban Climate and Environment” organized by the Polytechnic University Santa Maria (Chile) the last 26th of August with a invited talk on “Green Infrastructure for urban cooling: high-resolution scenarios based on urban morphology and environmental predictor model”.
