A novel tool for Green Infrastructure planning

Green Infrastructure is a network of multi-functional green spaces and water elements that augment the services of conventional infrastructure and provide multiple environmental, economic and social benefits such as clean air and water, climate regulation, erosion control, recreation, etc. It is increasingly considered a vital asset for liveable, sustainable and resilient cities and is becoming the global standard for meeting the growing needs of complex communities and environments in a sustainable way. However, the ability to assess the extent and performance of existing GI assets and networks and to use this for future planning, is a significant gap world-wide. The GI Assessment Matrix (GIAM™) developed by Syrinx seeks to provide a robust and scientifically sound planning, assessment and ranking tool, specific to GI assets in urban and regional settings. The tool is designed to improve efficiencies by rewarding multi-functionality and integration of assets, and encompasses climate response, water sensitivity, biodiversity, ecosystem resilience, energy resilience & emissions, waste management and community health and wellbeing. These global key performance categories are in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.
