Lisbon City responds to Increasing Heat with Plant Plans

Câmara de Lisboa will plant around 120,000 trees and 116,000 shrubs in 2022 and 2023, as part of the effort to combat the increasing urban heat. The trees will include cork oaks, olive trees, almond trees, carob trees, and others as well as more specific species for waterlines.

The acquisition of the more than 235,000 specimens is part of the wider climate adaptation policies that Câmara de Lisboa is bringing in and falls under the scope of the EU-wide LIFE program. With the previous funding period ending last year, the environmental program will now focus on:

  • Nature and biodiversity
  • Circular economy and quality of life
  • Climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • Clean energy transition

It is “mitigation and adaptation” that Câmara de Lisboa hopes the trees will provide.
