Rising temperatures can be mitigated by the extension of forests in urban areas.

Rising temperatures can be mitigated by the extension of forests in urban areas. 'EMoNFUr' (LIFE10 ENV/IT/000399) has clearly demonstrated this effect by monitoring urban and peri-urban forests in Lombardy, Italy, and the Osrednjeslovenska region of Slovenia. "By comparing the data obtained from the weather stations of the project with the data of 2002, we measured a decrease in temperatures," says project manager Enrico Calvo. "The cooling effect is greater at night (-0.7°C). This is very important as ,for example, Milan in the last decades has undergone an average annual temperature increase of 1.5°C."
