The Green Infrastructure Approach The Landscape Institute, in its Green Infrastructure (GI) Position Statement (2009), ‘recognises that the natural environment has a critical role to play in sustaining life, and the quality of that life, through the provision of a range of different functions’, particularly when it is ‘planned and managed as an integrated whole; a managed network of greenspaces, habitats and places providing benefits which exceed the sum of the individual parts. It is this concept of connectivity and multi-functionality which makes the GI approach such an important part of landscape planning and management’ with ‘the potential to deliver a wide range of social, environmental and economic benefits’.
