Infrastructure - Building a green infrastructure for Europe

Investing into green infrastructure makes sound economic sense – a single area of land can offer multiple benefits, provided its ecosystems are in a healthy condition. Such healthy ecosystems, which are powered by the diversity of life within them, provide society with a stream of valuable, economically important goods and services such as clean water and air, carbon storage, pollination etc. They also play a central role in fighting climate change impacts by protecting us against floods and other environmental disasters.

Urban green spaces, places of public health, vectors of economic activity

Asterès study /UNEP

‘Green spaces are profitable investments for society.’

While more than 8 in 10 French people want to live near a green space, municipalities allocate a budget too limited to green spaces in the city: less than 1% of their annual budget. This study shows that green spaces have a direct influence on the health of citizens, but also on the attractiveness of territories.
