Title: LF621 - Structural Green Infrastructures (LUISA Platform REF2014)

Description

The indicator presented here measures the share of Green Infrastructure at different regional levels (in %). Green Infrastructure (GI) is defined as a strategically planned and delivered network of high quality green spaces and other environmental features (EC, 2012) that are structurally and functionally - interconnected and therefore bring added benefits and are more resilientThe level of detail of this indicator is per NUTS0 and NUTS2.
