This course unit will provide students with an understanding of the various approaches and methodologies used to assess the benefits of green infrastructure. These will focus on environmental aspects, although social and economic themes will be considered in this unit.  

This course will allow students to get hands-on experience with datasets acquired from a range of green infrastructure case studies – covering different scales and from a variety of geographic localities. A key component to this module is local fieldwork where students will have the opportunity to visit and critique existing green infrastructure schemes in Manchester and the surrounding region. Signposting potential dissertation projects will also feature in this module
