Greenery and biodiversity

The abundant vegetation provides shade, humidity and freshness, thereby making public spaces more comfortable. We currently have 17 m2 of greenery per resident throughout the whole municipal district.

Barcelona is committed to making the most of its opportunities for increasing greenery in the city by adding an extra 1.6 km2 of green spaces (parks, gardens, green corridors, lines of trees, green terraces, green roofs and so on) by 2030, in other words, an extra 1 m2 per current resident.
