LIFE LUNGS: Towards a more resilient Lisbon UrbaN Green InfraStructure as an adaptation to climate change

The LIFE LUNGS project, co-financed by the EU and Municipality of Lisbon, aims to make the city more resilient to rising temperatures, and adapt to the effects of heat waves and water scarcity. This needs to be done in line with the climate policies adopted by the municipality and through the implementation of urban green infrastructure. A key measure is to increase tree coverage density along Lisbon's urban green infrastructure by planting of 240,000 trees and shrubs in the green spaces of the city.
