Green and blue lungs: a challenge for the city’s flora and fauna

Green and blue lungs: a challenge for the city’s flora and fauna

How to re-establish ecological networks in a permanently expanding urban world? Natural areas, reservoirs of biodiversity and green and blue spaces should be protected to provide inhabitants with places that function in terms of use, landmark, and memory.

While Beijing and Shanghai rank among the top 10 greenest cities in the world, with close to 20 million m2 of green space, questions have arisen regarding ecological continuity. For other Chinese cities currently under development, for instance Wuhan and Chongqing, the question is how to integrate this element into neighbourhood planning? Could the city seize new spaces and transform itself into an urban jungle? Natural areas, reservoirs of biodiversity, and green and blue spaces should be protected to provide inhabitants with places that function in terms of use, landmark, and memory. The management and preservation of ecological corridors requires a co-ordinated effort. For this reason, both public and private stakeholders will be taking part in a roundtable to explain the challenges linked to the governance of these fragile spaces in France and in China.


Aurélien Daloz and Simon Woodsworth, speaking on behalf of The French Resource Centre for Green and Blue Belts and the Occitan region, respectively, will present French policy for the preservation of urban biodiversity, and the tools that it employs. Green or blue belts are management tools whose aim is to reconstitute the ecological corridors that occur at several levels throughout the country. Thomas Corpetti, the manager of the Franco-Chinese CARIOCA project (Climate and Land Cover Interactions with Complex Data) will explain the significance of satellite imagery for observing and understanding the role of vegetation in an urban setting.
