This submission has open access
Submission Summary
Climate Change is a severe global phenomenon, the pace of severity is accelerating. It is a challenge for a developing country like India and its cities. In response to the fast growth of urbanisation in Indian cities, it is important to pay attention to urban forestry to balance the ecosystem. Miyawaki Forests are Urban Forests projects for ecosystem restoration. In this paper, an effort has been made to analyse and evaluate the urban green spaces and vacant spaces in Raipur and New Raipur (Chhattisgarh). In this study, qualitative and quantitative study approach was taken using the Remote sensing technology for the urban green spaces. The Miyawaki method was assessed as strategic mitigation and adaptation against climate change for the increased degraded spaces and its scope of application for vacant urban spaces. The results were observed that the urban forest works as a net carbon sink and substantial control of urban heat islands. Therefore, this study helps in restoring the ecosystem of the city by identifying the degraded public land and vacant land for application of the Miyawaki Method to reduce the impact of climate change.
