Report: Building a Green Infrastructure for Europe

#european commission #green infrastructure

Green Infrastructure – a network of healthy ecosystems – serves the interests of both people and nature. It ensures that the quality of ecosystems is maintained or restored and that natural areas remain connected together. Therefore, benefits from nature such as clean air and water, flood prevention, crop pollination, carbon storage or health and well-being are delivered to citizens. At the same time, it allows species to thrive across their natural habitat.

In 2013, the European Commission has published a report on this matter. Those who are interested in this matter can click here to read the report.
