A new report entitled Designing Blue Green Infrastructure (BGI) for water management, human health, and wellbeing: summary of evidence and principles for design explores this question and provides detailed recommendations for practitioners.
In this report Eun Yeong Choe, Anna Kenyon and Liz Sharp select, collate and present evidence about how enhancing green features of the local environment to improve water management can also improve the health and wellbeing within a host community.
READ THE REPORTThe evidence in this report is expected to support practitioners:
- To advocate health-promoting BGI to policy makers;
