Green City Spaces Help Battle Climate Change

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 12, 2009 -- Efforts to enhance green spaces in cities will help to reduce the impact of climate change across Europe, it has been claimed.Furthermore, Jeremy Carter of the University of Manchester claims that the differences between cities that choose to adapt will be `stark`.A group of eight European Union member states recently agreed to collaborate to reduce the impacts of climate change in their cities, assisted by an academic project led by Dr Carter.

He explained:`If we protect and enhance green and blue space and encourage sustainable urban development then a viable future for our cities can be achieved. Greening the city is not just about coping with climate change but also has health, social and economic benefits too.`Dr Carter`s project will be managed by the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) and will help to develop action plans for ten cities and regions across the continent.The TCPA project won funding from the European Union Regional Development Fund for an area of policy that has been `largely neglected`, according to Dr Carter.
