Project: Realizing Sustainable Development Goals 11: Establishing a Green Infrastructure Planning Model based on the Perspective of Environmental Efficiency – A case study of Tamsui River Basin, Taiwan

Supervised by: Shawn Laffan, Graciela Metternicht

Project Description: Climate change has caused various environmental risks, and green infrastructure implementation has been seen as a strategy for adaptation and mitigation. It is not uncommon that land, financial and human capitals are scarce, and henceforth there is a need to prioritize the location of green infrastructure to maximize multiple co-benefits at lower costs. This study aims to develop a green infrastructure planning model based on an environmental efficiency perspective for sustainable land management. The co-benefits provided by green infrastructure will be simulated, and the multiple co-benefits and costs will be integrated to compute the efficiency of future green infrastructure.
