Promoting ecosystem and human health in urban areas using Green Infrastructure: A literature review
Water Management Strategies: Distributed Stormwater Infrastructure
Promoting ecosystem and human health in urban areas using Green Infrastructure: A literature review formulates a conceptual framework of associations between urban green space and ecosystem health and human health. Through an interdisciplinary literature review the possible contributions of Green Infrastructure on both ecosystem and human health are critically reviewed. Over a dozen studies are cited that demonstrate human health aspects related to green space and nature. Includes definitions of ecosystem services and Green Infrastructure (GI) which differ from LID definitions of GI in the U.S.
