A Green Architecture for Green Infrastructure – How the future CAP could support Green and Blue Infrastructures

BIOGEA project 2020: A Green Architecture for Green Infrastructure. How the future CAP could support Green and Blue Infrastructures. Berlin: adelphi.

Green and Blue Infrastructures (GBI), such as hedgerows, trees, grass strips, water courses and ditches, land lying fallow or extensive arable land and extensive grassland, support biodiversity in farmland. The biodiversity benefits are however context and management specific. This briefing describes the policy recommendations of the BIOGEA project on the minimum amount of GBI needed in agricultural landscapes for biodiversity.
