The Green Infrastructure project has undertaken a strategic planning process to identify the pathways and processes necessary to achieve effective, long-term change in the way Green Infrastructure is perceived, designed and managed. This process has involved consultation with government, industry and community stakeholders in the diverse fields of health, land and water management, sustainability and climate change, design, education, transport, recreation, land development, policy and planning.
Through research and development of a scientific evidence base, working closely with policy, planning and development agencies, identifying and assisting exemplar projects, developing resources and raising awareness throughout the community, the project aims to facilitate the incorporation of GI within an integrated approach to urban design and development and to improve capacity for its development and maintenance in South Australia.
Conclusion Connected networks of green spaces and water systems underpin the functionality of towns and cities and impact directly on community health and well-being, liveability and sustainability. Plants and water form the basis for life and in an increasingly urbanised world, Green Infrastructure is essential in providing life support to towns and cities, the primary human habitats of the future.
The ultimate success of Green Infrastructure as a new ‘paradigm’ requires: recognition of its values and benefits, by the whole community and at the highest strategic levels; capacity building in the institutions and organizations involved in implementing Green Infrastructure in its different forms; and incorporating Green Infrastructure as an essential, rather than optional, component in the urban development process.
