Demystifying Green Infrastructure

As well as its intrinsic value, it is becoming increasingly clear just how important GI is for climate change adaptation, biodiversity and human health and wellbeing. Clearly, the protection and enhancement of our GI is vital, and the construction and property sector must play a central role in achieving this. This report seeks to consolidate existing information for those working in the built environment, providing a simple, accessible guide. It helps to define the topic and its scope, and crucially attempts to highlight the business case for creating and maintaining GI - aimed primarily at the developer and client.
