It places enormous pressure on nearby forests and woodlands and is often a source of tension between the host and displaced communities. A lack of sufficient cooking fuel also has an impact on the nutrition and health of vulnerable people in such settings.

    Krošnje velikih stabala su prirodan filter za lebdeće čestice i štetne plinove u zraku. Jedno stablo iz atmosfere godišnje uklanja 150 kg CO2 i time doprinosi ublažavanju klimatskih promjena. Drveće pruža stanište, hranu i zaštitu ostalim biljkama i životinjama te time povećava bioraznolikost u urbanim sredinama. Sadnjom stabala danas utječemo na kvalitetu života budućih generacija!

    Una de las problemáticas más serias identificadas luego de revisar la información de los estudios de caracterización, es la disponibilidad de los datos recopilados. En la mayoría de los casos el detalle metodológico y las bases de datos con la información generada, no están disponibles para su uso por parte de actores diferentes a los desarrolladores del estudio.

    Крошње великог дрвећа у урбаним срединама су одличан филтер за урбане загађиваче и фине честице. Једно дрво може годишње да упије и до 150 кг угљен-диоксида (CO2) из атмосфере, и тиме допринесе ублажавању последица климатских промена. Дрвеће пружа станиште, храну и заштиту биљкама и животињама, повећавајући биодиверзитет у урбаним срединама. Cадња дрвећа данас је од великог значаја за будуће генерације!
