Climate change park

Date added: 28/02/2017

Two images that illustrate a typical urban park and how it looks before and after it is managed to deliver climate change actions.

These two visuals show a 'before' image of a typical urban park and an 'after’ image of how a park could look when it is managed to support climate change mitigation and adaptation. A summary table also highlights a wider range of greenspace actions and identifies their role in supporting climate change mitigation and/or adaptation. The actions include: green networks, soil conservation, floodplain restoration, street trees, green roofs, living walls.

These images are part of a suite of resources developed by Greenspace Scotland with support from Scottish Natural Heritage with contributions from a number of Scottish local authorities and agencies.
