What is Green Infrastructure

Just as sustainable communities need to upgrade and expand their grey infrastructure (roads, sewers, utilities etc.), so too, they need to enhance and maintain their green infrastructure – the network of open space, woodlands, wildlife habitat, parks and other natural areas, which sustain clean air, water, and natural resources and enrich their citizens' quality of life.
