Do cities use science when planning for infrastructure projects? Do scientists share their knowledge with urban policy makers? Do urban policy makers know the functions of nature in the city?
The EnRoute Project have developed a survey to help to identify obstacles in the science-policy collaboration of the policy planning cycle and improve future planning tools.
EnRoute stands for Enhancing Resilience of Urban Ecosystems through green infrastructure. EnRoute provides scientific knowledge of how urban ecosystems can support urban planning at different stages of policy and for various spatial scales and how to help policy-making for sustainable cities. It aims to promote the application of urban green infrastructure at local level and delivers guidance on the creation, management and governance of urban green infrastructure. Importantly, it illustrates how collaboration between and across different policy levels can lead to concrete green infrastructure policy setting.
