On Friday, March 22, 2019, Tropenbos Suriname launched its twinning project "Towards a Green and Livable Paramaribo" in the auditorium of the IGSR Staatsolie building. Trees and other urban green spaces can make an important contribution to a more liveable Paramaribo. Urban green spaces contribute, among other things, to a better microclimate, provision of fruits and herbs, recreation, a healthier environment, mitigation of flooding, and improving mental health. Nowadays there is insufficient appreciation for urban green spaces in our city. Concrete takes the upper hand and the environmental, social and economic benefits that urban green spaces can offer remain unused.
