[CCH_2] Vito, Shabeh and the Miyawaki Forest

In this episode of Climate Chatter Hamburg, Vito interviews Shabeh on the concept of the Miyawaki Forest. Developed by the botanist Akira Miyawaki, the Miyawaki Forest technique has many advantages over conventional forestry methods. For one thing, a Miyawaki Forest grows up to ten times faster.

How is that even possible, and what are the potential benefits to society? Those are just some of the questions answered in this podcast. Aside from the focus on the Miyawaki Forest, the two SICSS researchers discuss the general concept of forests, and how humans them for their purposes. Special focus is put on forests in urban areas, where the Miyawaki technique could be highly effective in mitigating urban heat stress.
