Integrated System Analysis of Urban Vegetation and Agriculture (URBAG)

Project Details


Urban sites can implement green infrastructures to encourage food production, promote air quality and temperature, and reduce environmental impact. The EU-funded URBAG project will investigate how urban and peri-urban green infrastructures can contribute to urban sustainability. It will assess which combinations of urban and peri-urban agriculture and green spaces have the best performance on local and global environmental impact. URBAG will establish a geo-referenced land use model considering urban morphology and defining life cycle impacts. Analysis will also comprise an integrated spatially-temporally resolved system for quantitative analysis and simulation of green infrastructures for determining their direct and indirect effects on the atmosphere. The two case study cities of Oslo and Barcelona will be used to test the integrated approach.
