This video is an introduction to the idea of green infrastructure as an approach for the Gauteng City-Region to improve the environment but also the economy and quality of life of the city-region.
The last few years have seen a significant uptick in research interest and policy concern over the sustainability of the development path we are on. For example there is a growing awareness of the probable development impacts of climate change and variability (Gauteng is likely to see increased disaster vulnerability and growing water scarcity in the years ahead). GCRO has done considerable work in this area over the years.
