Lineage information about this project or dataset
The ecosystem approach (EA) and green infrastructure (GI) have emerged as key concepts for sustainable environmental management; however, at present, both EA and GI are poorly integrated with spatial planning systems that are responsible for regulating land-use and the built environment. This project addresses this deficit by evaluating the EA and GI concepts and will provide guidelines, methodologies and a planning toolkit for the effective integration of EA/GI into spatial planning frameworks from national to local levels. The specific objectives of the study include: to provide an understanding of EA for sustainable environmental management and the potential of the green infrastructure concept as an integrative policy tool, including international best practice; to identify the international and national legislative and policy frameworks underpinning biodiversity and nature conservation, and to evaluate how these relate to the spatial planning system; to provide a baseline study of current national practice in relation to EA, GI and spatial planning; to develop a cross-sectoral and stakeholder-based approach to identify pathways towards integrating EA/GI into spatial planning frameworks; and to develop recommendations and guidelines for the effective integration of EA/GI and spatial planning.
