A multidimensional assessment of urban greening aiming to the urban adaptation to the climate change.
Green infrastructure is an essential constituent of a sustainable urban environment. The objective of this research is to evaluate the complexity of urban greening by a multidimensional evaluation approach in order to constitute the proper management guidelines, which will lead to the enhancement of the greening, for the urban adaptation to climate change. To achieve this goal a field data collection took place in the Municipality of Thessaloniki. Twenty specific criteria and indicators were used, on a scoreboard, to deploy a type of multi-criteria analysis for quantitative and qualitative assessment. The results show that, although the monetary value of the street trees is approximately 17 million € and total carbon sequestration is more than 6.000 tn, only a rough and unpolished kind of Urban Greening Management is implemented.
