Building Green Infrastructure for Europe

Year of publication: 2008


Ensuring connectivity between important biodiversity areas means investing heavily in the construction of green bridges, tunnels, fish passes, restoration of rivers and wetlands, including the removal of obsolete infrastructure, and the creation of suitable habitats in the farmed landscape. In other words, a ‘Green Infrastructure’ network is now fundamental to preserving biodiversity as well as ecosystem functions in Europe. In this paper EEB explains the importance of constructing this ‘Green Infrastructure’, what it will look like, and identifies key policy recommendations for the new European Parliament and Commission.
The Alpine initiatives are cited as a case study.
