zoom-in 1
Short description
In her first Zoom-in, UIA Expert Jorgina Cuixart presents Invasive Alien Plant Species (IAPS) and their impact on cities.

She shares some details on the “traditional” linear approach to IAPS management vs. Ljubljana’s circular approach. Find out the project’s first conclusions and recommendations about mapping out IAPS, selecting the most appropriate IAPS for secondary use, organising their collection and pre-treatment!
