Green Infrastructure Network

Brochure Green Infrastructure Network

Green Infrastructure is addressing the spatial structure of natural and semi-natural areas but also other environmental features which enable citizens to benefit from its multiple services. The underlying principle of Green Infrastructure is that the same area of land can frequently offer multiple benefits if its ecosystems are in a healthy state. Green Infrastructure investments are generally characterized by a high level of return over time, provide job opportunities, and can be a cost-effective alternative or be complementary to 'grey' infrastructure and intensive land use change. It serves the interests of both people and nature.

The Commission has produced a brochure explaining the main issues of Green Infrastructure.  More detailed background on Green Infrastructure, including relevant studies with best practice examples, can be found here.
