LUIGI 
Linking Urban and Inner-Alpine Green Infrastructure - Multifunctional Ecosystem Services for more liveable territories
Home

Overview

The Alpine Space hosts a great variety of spaces connecting mountain ecosystems and urban centres (e.g. orchards, forests, rivers). Each of these natural or semi-natural spaces, also called green infrastructures, bring environmental, economical and societal benefits and ecosystem services: supply of food, water, recreation areas, and climate regulation. LUIGI explored those ecosystem services and strengthened the link between mountain ecosystems and urban centres at the foot of the Alps, based on sound economic and social exchanges. The project supported the recognition and valorisation of joint benefits deriving from a green infrastructure network between mountain/rural and urban areas as well as their potential for a sustainable economic development.
