This innovative guidance is the first of its kind in Scotland (the second in the UK) and sets a high benchmark for integration of blue-green infrastructure in the City of Edinburgh. It takes a holistic approach to rainwater management and climate change adaption that focuses on positive, placemaking, people and nature.
This guidance is particularly relevant at this moment when the global pandemic has allowed us as a nation to pause and reassess how we live and work in our cities. It provides a practical, accessible guide that covers the ' why, ' how' and ' where' of bringing about positive change, restoring nature, greening our cities and creating beautiful inclusive places.
