Developing new Blue-Green futures: multifunctional infrastructure to address water challenges

There is a recognised need for a fundamental change in how cities manage water in response to increasingly frequent and extreme rainfall events, drier summers and urban expansion. Approaches centred on ‘living with and making space for water’ are increasingly adopted internationally and address the full water spectrum (floods to droughts). Such approaches are essential components of visions for Blue-Green futures. This includes resilient and sustainable approaches using nature-based solutions, natural flood management and Blue-Green Infrastructure (BGI) that enrich society through the provision of multiple co-benefits, e.g. access to public green space, recreational opportunities, aesthetic enhancements, and improved management of environmental processes such as flooding, drought, urban heat, water and air pollution. Such futures ultimately lead to healthier, more cohesive communities with improved quality of life.
