There has been a number of new initiatives on green infrastructure (GI) recently. A new resource from HR Wallingford shows how GI can help protect river banks and reduce flow speeds, and is often cheaper than conventional river engineering whilst providing multiple benefits.

The National Infrastructure Commission has assessed the impact of the environment and climate change on future infrastructure. It includes analysis of water quality and water resource impacts, and looks at the prospects for integrating green infrastructure and natural capital into future infrastructure plans.
Translating Green Infrastructure research into decision making and practice By Dr Ingo Schüder, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has been promoting research on Green Infrastructure over recent years.
Green infrastructure can help protect river banks, reduce flow speeds, is often cheaper than conventional river engineering and provides multiple benefits, according to a new ebook from HR Wallingford.
Together, the ebook says, these are the critical success factors that river engineers can use to overcome the procedural and technical barriers preventing the use of GI approaches in river engineering schemes.
