LT Woods Global medDeforestation and land use change account for approximately 11% of global carbon dioxide emissions. As the majority of the world’s population for the first time live in urban areas, understanding how to value and care for woodland in an urban context is increasingly vital. This talk will explore how Corby’s experience compares with urban forest management around the world and discuss lessons and opportunities.
