Francesco is a member of the Center for Climate Change, Energy and Environmental Law, where he is currently pursuing his PhD on the legal feasibility of implementing urban Nature-based Solutions across European cities. The main research areas addressed by his project are conservation of urban biodiversity and improvement of climate change adaptation. The latter is examined through the lens of heat and flood management in urban areas. Francesco is interested in analysing the main legal challenges that hinder Nature-based Solutions implementation and scaling-up within the European Union.
