Pre-feasibility study for the greening of urban areas

Potential climate/ disaster impacts addressed by approach & Justification for approach:

A drop in annual rainfall and the lack of free passage along the water enables the degradation of the Sothern Bug River's banks, which is the most important river in Vinnitsya. Urban greening is expected to provide an opportunity for climate change adaptation and mitigation. The cooling capacity of urban vegetation hall reduces the heat island effect while, at the same time, lower energy consumption for cooling and enhancing carbon sequestration. Coupled with the existing river basin management plan, green and blue infrastructure has the potential to improve and protect the riverbank areas within the city, reducing the risk of flooding and erosion.

Process of Implementation:

After shortlisting the city, the Gap Fund conducted a detailed assessment taht was approved by the TS. The team prepared a ToR with the city and later on, the TA was implemented and supervised by the GF team. Throughout the process, all relevant stakeholders were engaged.
