Ashish Kumar Srivastava
Congratulations Mr Thomas Hofer, Secretary,APFC and the Royal Forestry Department,Govt. of Thailand for organizing successfully this webinar on Urban forestry innovations to transform landscapes and well-being in the post-Covid-19 era.A comment from me:Some of the good Urban Forests / City Forests/ City Gardens could be identified for management as Other Effective Area-based Conservation Measures (OECMs) under the Target 11 of Aichi Biodiversity Target, provided they fulfill the guidelines for identification of OECMs. Linking urban forestry to their biodiversity values, apart from climate resilience, pollution abatement, health and recreational benefits gives further justification for maintaining such urban greens amidst conflicting claims on land in our expanding city landscapes.A.K.
