These guidelines are the result a consultative process that involved a large number of practitioners from both developed and developing countries. Two meetings were held in Glasgow and Delhi and a tentative outline was agreed upon. The guidelines are intended to provide a reference framework for decision makers and planners to adequately plan, design and manage the forest and trees in and around their cities. The document will include a general overview of the role of urban and peri-urban forests (UPF) towards a sustainable urban development, as well as specific chapters recommending policy and management actions to be taken to maximize UPF contribution in addressing both global and local challenges.
