Climate change, urban land expansion, and deforestation have led to a steep decline in biodiversity. To make matters worse, roads, infrastructure and activities in urban areas block plant and wildlife habitats from connecting to each another.
Green corridors are an effective way of partially solving this problem by bridging these habitats. The Green Corridor Project in Medellin, Colombia, is a great example where 36 green corridors were created to restore green and blue belts. The results have been far-reaching, including improved biodiversity in the city, improved air quality, a reduction of 2°C in the average temperature, and more CO2 being absorbed.
