Berlin - NBS for urban green connectivity and biodiversit
Berlin has a population of 5 066 361 inhabitants (larger urban area, 2015). Its main challenge is to decouple the city‘s growth from negative impacts on climate and the environment. In this respect, maintaining and/or increasing connectivity of green infrastructures in the city is seen as a major challenge, due to increasing demand for building land in this growing city. Protecting and transforming vacant city areas into green spaces are a response to new challenges for the design of green areas:
- the diversification of society
- increased demand for recreation
- climate change.
