Henrik Bregnhøj has signed a contract for the services of an individual contractor for UN-Habitat. He shall from now and till the end of June 2022 design a course on Urban Ecosystem-based Adaptation in three versions: for classroom teaching, a blended version and a fully online version.
UN-Habitat works to build inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities. They put a particular focus on peri-urban areas, that has all kinds of challenges in becoming resilient living areas.
The Ecosystem-based Adaptation includes various Nature-based Systems, like fruit tree-planting, green roofs and parks with natural storm water run-off. It is yet another tool in the toolbox to both improve living conditions and reduce climate change impacts and strengthen biodiversity.
And of course the online version of the course will be openly accessible to the public. This project has all the right aspects!
