Enhance The Life Standards Of People

We also aim to eradicate poverty by providing knowledge about green infrastructure to regions that are far away from the cities.

What is green infrastructure? What are the benefits of green infrastructure? How does it influence the life standards of people? The technical definition of Green infrastructure is the different varieties of measures that use plant or soil systems, permeable pavement or other permeable surfaces, stormwater harvest and reuse, or landscaping to store, infiltrate, or evapotranspirate stormwater and reduce flows to sewer systems or to surface waters. But in simple words, green infrastructure is a cost-effective and strong perspective that uses vegetation, soils, and other elements and practices to restore some of the natural processes required to manage water and create healthier urban environments.

Green infrastructure includes parks, open spaces, playing fields, woodlands, street trees, allotments, private gardens, green roofs and walls, sustainable drainage systems and soils.

It is a strategy for promoting, supporting and enhancing nature based solutions to the needs of the society and challenges such as biodiversity conservation, climate change adaptation and mitigation, clean air and water supply.

Green infrastructure increases exposure to the natural environment, reduces exposure to harmful substances and conditions, provides opportunity for recreation and physical activity, improves safety, promotes community identity and a sense of well-being, and provides economic benefits to both the society and household.

It provides many community benefits, such as reducing energy consumption, improving air quality and increasing property values. Green infrastructure is highly recommended, especially to cities, to promote healthier living.

Target 

Green infrastructure targets to deliver the greatest economic benefits while ensuring that a high quality environment is protected. Some examples of green infrastructure that should be incorporated in a society are:

  • Downspout Disconnection
  • Rainwater Harvesting
  • Rain Gardens
  • Planter Boxes
  • Bioswales
  • Permeable Pavements
  • Green Streets and Alleys along with Green Parking

Benefits

Green Infrastructure is an essential component of sustainable communities primarily because it can help communities protect the environment and human health while providing other social and economic benefits.

Green infrastructure is highly recommended, especially to cities, to promote healthier living, providing spaces for physical activity and relaxation, to cool the city and absorb stormwater, to reduce the impacts of climate change, to filter pollutants

Concentrating on the design of green infrastructure within the society is a way of getting more out of our green spaces, making them hugely efficient and valuable assets by bringing many benefits to the residents as green spaces are the life support of our society.
