2022 intern report - Green space assessment framework
Author: Thuy Nguyen
Date: 25 September 2022
This research presents a conceptual framework defining standards for a high-quality green space and a four-step approach for assessing urban greening projects.
The framework highlights that a high-quality green space needs to be accessible and welcoming to all social groups, meets local needs, supports people’s health and wellbeing, improves the local environment, and mitigates climate change impacts. The four-step approach lays out how Lund Trust should evaluate urban greening projects.
The first step is to identify areas that need green space investment. The second step is to understand the local context. The third step is to decide the specific issues to tackle. And the final step is to quantify the project’s ecosystem services.
