Welcome to GreenInfraNet!
The Green Infrastructure Network (GreenInfraNet) is a partnership of 11 regions from across Europe. The partners are working together to promote the development and implementation of green infrastructure in EU regions. This will be achieved through the exchange of experience and expertise and by identifying, analysing and transferring good practices. The three-year project was launched in April 2012 and is co-funded by the EU programme INTERREG IVC.
The green infrastructure concept places biodiversity conservation within a broader policy framework in which primary nature conservation objectives can be achieved in closer harmony with other land-use objectives such as agriculture, forestry, recreation and climate change adaptation. Green infrastructure also contributes to a sustainable economy by maintaining ecosystem services and mitigating the adverse effects of transport and energy infrastructure, and of economic development in general.
