Adaptive governance of urban green spaces across Latin America – Insights amid COVID-19

events | seminars, workshops |

The webinar series on urban forests, arranged by SLU Urban Futures and Future Forests, continues with a presentation by Dr. Martinez Cruz from the Department of Forest Economics in Umeå. He will discuss how managers of Urban Green Spaces (UGS) along Latin America have adapted (or not) to the challenges imposed by social distancing measures, and how adaptation reflects the type of governance in place.

Dr Martinez Cruz is an empirical micro-economist who primarily focuses on applications and innovations of non-market valuation methods. UGS are of particular interest to him because ecosystem services provided through UGS are less prompted to be valued in comparison to those provided by more pristine ecosystems.
