    June, 2018
    France

    Les implantations commerciales et leurs transformations ont un impact considérable sur l’organisation territoriale, alors qu’elles sont particulièrement difficiles à encadrer avec les outils d’urbanisme. Que faire ? Une équipe locale rend compte de ses expériences.

    Le développement du commerce a longtemps été considéré comme une question privée. Elle ne concernait pas la sphère publique. L’implication des collectivités – et des urbanistes – sur ce sujet est assez récente.

    The viability of the climate pledges made by Brazil at the COP21 in Paris, 2015, heavily depends on the success of the country policies related to forest governance. Particularly, there are high expectations that the enforcement of the Brazilian Forest Code (BFC) will drive large-scale forest recovery and carbon mitigation. In this study, we quantified the potential role that ongoing forest regeneration may play in offsetting deficits from private properties with less vegetation cover than determined by the BFC, considering different law implementation settings.

    Forests cover about 40 % of the European Union (EU), providing a wide spectrum of invaluable ecosystem services to more than half a billion people. In order to protect and harness this crucial asset, EU policies are advancing multifunctional management. This study lays a basis for such an effort by mapping the supply of key forest ecosystem services (FES) across the entire EU: wood, water supply, erosion control, pollination, habitat protection, soil formation, climate regulation and recreation.
