Green Infrastructure Innovation Needed for Urban Ecosystems
Green infrastructure innovations are climate solutions that provide both adaptation and mitigation benefits as well as other positive co-benefits such as improved water and air quality, protection and enhanced urban ecosystems and biodiversity, as well as health and recreational green spaces for citizens to access and immerse in nature.
Many fields, including public health, must be involved in the landscape conservation necessary to protect and improve health and well-being.
Failing to fully represent the numerous health co-benefits of Green Infrastructure (GI) undersells the importance of GI, and underselling the importance of GI to health puts both GI and health at risk.
