The Case For Using Green Infrastructure in a Land Use Planning Framework for Resilient Rural Communities

Green Infrastructure is a form of land use planning based on a foundation integrating natural elements (both real/artificial) into linked environmental networks; these networks in turn provide multi-functional benefits to both human and natural environment communities.

This presentation delves into the definition and practices associated with Green Infrastructure (GI) and reviews research work associated with the topic of using GI to frame a development/conservation program for resilient rural places.
