Green Infrastructure in urban spaces

Green Infrastructure in urban spaces: Bases, planning and implementation in integrated urban development

Through the general discussion on sustainable urban development currently at both national and international level an increasing interest in the subject urban greenspace and the concept of green infrastructure can be observed. Internationally, the EU strategy on green infrastructure refers to urban areas explicitly. In the currently developed "federal concept green infrastructure" cities are playing a role as well.

At the federal level, the “Green Paper on Urban Green” (Grünbuch Stadtgrün) was presented in 2015 presented by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation, to which a corresponding “White Paper” (Weißbuch) will follow in 2017. The “Conservation Initiative 2020” of the Federal Ministry of the Environment Nature Conservation and Reactor Safety (BMUB) from 2015 anchored "Green City experience" (Grün in der Stadt erleben) as one of ten priority action areas of conservation.

The research project discusses the relevance of the concept of green infrastructure at the local level and provides guidance for the operationalization of the concept. The aim is to develop a framework paper for green infrastructure in urban areas in Germany, which is supported by many relevant actors


The project comprises the following steps:

  1. Acquisition and presentation of knowledge and state of research on the topic of the green infrastructure in urban areas
  2. Analysis of relevant research and recommendations with regard to quantitative and qualitative objectives
  3. Analysis of informal and formal tools and development of recommendations to the action fields of urban green infrastructure
  4. Formulatioon of a key issues paper for technical assistance of the local authorities in the development and conception of urban green infrastructure

The project is conducted in collaboration with:

In cooperation with :

  • bgmr Landschaftsarchitekten GmbH (V.-Prof. Dr. Carlo W. Becker)
