Project abstract

Nowadays, urban sprawl is generating nuisances: the increase of artificial surfaces to the detriment of natural surfaces has consequences on urban environment quality (urban heat island, pollution...), but also on the energy consumption. With the increase of urban population it is necessary to find compromises. In the project VegDUD, vegetation is observed as one of the possible solutions for the sustainable development of cities.

  • Practices : What are the traditional and novel practices of the urban vegetation ? How interesting are they from the climatic and urban points of view ? How can we formalize the overall (environmental, social, economical) assessment of these practices ?
