The UK’s Houses of Parliament published its “Urban Green Infrastructure and Ecosystem Services” report to identify the benefits that natural systems such as GSI provide to humans, such as:
- Urban temperature regulation
- Improved air quality
- Noise reduction
The report also provides strategies jurisdictions use when making the case for green infrastructure, including the UN’s Sustainable ‘Development Goals (SDGs)’, Berlin’s ‘Biotope Area Factor,’ and Japan’s ‘Urban Green Space Conservation Act.’ Click here for the full report.
