Green infrastructure

Our new report highlights the importance of green infrastructure for nature.

Green infrastructure is what brings our towns, cities and communities alive and makes them great places to live in. Street trees, gardens, green roofs, community forests, parks, rivers, canals and wetlands deliver a wide range of proven, tangible, and cost-effective economic, social and environmental benefits. Simply by acting as a 'green oasis' in our concrete jungles, they offer recreation and health services for all including the most disadvantaged in society. 

Our new report explores the connection between green infrastructure and a healthier, more prosperous Wales – for people and for wildlife.
