Multiple Benefit Assessment of Blue Green Infrastructure

Opportunities have been explored for incorporating Nature Based Solutions into flood management strategies through encouraging the adoption of Sustainable Drainage Systems and Natural Flood Management and evaluating the multiple benefits these can provide.

A toolbox for mapping a range of multiple benefits from urban greenspace has been produced which represents the spatial distribution of benefits as they propagate over an urban landscape.
