Blue Green Infrastructure through Social Innovation


The BEGIN partnership will support cities in their approach to climate resilience through the increased use of ‘blue and green infrastructure’ (BGI). The financial and governance complexities of implementing BGI compared to traditional, less sustainable flood and extreme weather infrastructure will be examined and the barriers tackled collectively. It will also employ social innovation methods to empower multiple urban stakeholders to contribute to the design, construction and maintenance of BGI.
