Urban green technologies and biodiversity

Urban green technologies and biodiversity

Posted on 21 June, 2023 by Charlotte Lee

The process of urbanisation has contributed to an upsurge in pollution levels, resulting in adverse effects on both human health and the environment. As an illustration, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has reported that a majority of individuals residing in urban regions, more than 80%, are exposed to air pollution levels that surpass safe thresholds. Furthermore, the rapid expansion of urbanisation and industrialization has significantly deteriorated biodiversity in urban areas, leading to significant environmental harm. This emphasises the necessity of sustainable and environmentally friendly urban solutions. This involves the implementation of urban green technologies and a particular focus on biodiversity in urban planning, prioritising factors such as the well-being of individuals and the economy. The development of green technologies within urban settings represents an innovative approach to achieving sustainability. To address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in urban areas, key targets include: (1) reducing carbon emissions; (2) integrating renewable energy sources; (3) implementing measures to control air pollution in transportation systems; (4) promoting water conservation through recycling methods; and (5) improving management technologies.
