Improving urban environments for citizens’ health and well-being.
A public-private partnership
Cities are important economic hubs and home to more than half of the world’s population. They are cultural centres and prime destinations for leisure and recreation. Investments in the greenification of cities offer a smart way to significantly improve the social, economic and environmental aspects of the urban living environment. Green infrastructure contributes to better air quality and water management, reduces the heat island effect and has a proven positive effect on the mental and physical well-being of residents.
Romania has developed an action plan to meet the 2030 SDG objectives. The action plan aims to improve urban environments, health, water quality and citizens’ well-being. Romania is looking for ways to make sustainable changes at a local level and manage these changes. The Dutch cluster will add knowledge to the existing Romanian framework and develop sustainable change for the long term.
