Urban-Rural Dependencies and Opportunities to Design Nature-Based Solutions for Resilience in Europe and China
Based on the article in the 2nd newsletter Link where we introduced our strong contribution to the URP2020 Int. Conference (Sustainable & Resilient Urban-Rural-Partnerships), we elaborated a journal article in which we discuss urban-rural dependencies (see figure below) and introduce case studies for Chinese and European cities. For equity in cities, the people shed is introduced as a central concept. Dwellers are embedded in various geophysical dimensions (airshed, watershed, natureshed), suffer from various environmental pressures and also implement NBS through these urban-rural interdependencies.
