The Cities4Forests Toolbox

30th March 2020 by Emma Goring

A collection of practical tools from around the world to help cities include forests, trees, and green infrastructure in their decision-making, planning, and investments.

Cities4Forests helps cities from around the world connect with and invest in inner forests (such as city trees and urban parks), nearby forests (such as green corridors and watersheds) and faraway forests (such as tropical and boreal forests). We encourage cities to better conserve, manage, and restore these forests. And we provide technical assistance to align local policy, shared knowledge, peer-to-peer learning and communication activities in order to help cities take climate action together.

The Toolbox

Cities4Forests offers a collection of practical tools from around the world to help cities include forests, trees, and green infrastructure in their decision-making, planning, and investments. The tools cover a range of topics, from valuing trees and forests to maximizing key benefits (such as biodiversity, health, water, and carbon), and planning and managing forest-related projects inside and outside their boundaries.

To start, you can either search for a tool, browse the full list of tools, or use the filters to find the right tool for you. Review our briefer for more information on the Cities4Forests Toolbox.
