The GREEN SURGE Handbook

By clicking on the headlines below you will find selected outputs from the GREEN SURGE project 2013-2017. The outputs are all focused on how Urban Green Infrastructure can contribute to a sustainable future for cities by addressing major urban challenges. The challenges are related to land use conflicts, biodiversity conservation, climate change, demographic changes, a greener economy, and human health and wellbeing.

This handbook is a selection of findings and examples, compiled into policy briefs, factsheets, guidelines, recommendations, and main messages which are all tailor-made for decision-makers such as planners, policy-makers, and other practitioners. We hope this handbook can be useful and inspiring and help to shape the future of our cities by bringing the Urban Green Infrastructure concept up-front!
