Climate Resilience And Well-being Through Neighbourhood-scale Green Design: A Better Practice Guide

This report proposes strategies that provide strategic green space retrofits at the neighbourhood and block scale, represent a hierarchy of functional design concepts that respond to experiential qualities and physical/psychological dimensions of health, and enhance resilience from the individual to the neighbourhood. The report presents a typology of eight tangible green space strategies and associated metrics to integrate climate resilience and public health co-benefits into urban green space design and planning, providing users with decision-support tools for assessing alternative urban greening scenarios.
