Planning Green Infrastructure as a Source of Urban and Regional Resilience – Towards Institutional Challenges
Green infrastructure programmes and strategies are regarded as planning opportunities to promote sustainable and resilient urban development. However, the discourse about green infrastructure policy and its effectiveness has pointed to the limited success in practical implementation.

At the same time spatial planning may contribute to providing a platform for its institutionalisation.
