Building Back Blue

This report examines the value of 'blue-green infrastructure' and how the use of nature-based drainage solutions can mitigate flooding risks as well as benefit communities. In doing so the report addresses the need for community engagement, effective communication and where blue-green solutions fit into Scotland's infrastructure vision. 

The research comprises of three key elements:

  • Developing an understanding of how local authorities and housing associations meet the challenges of developing blue-green infrastructure, as part of creating positive living environments.
  • Establishing how people understand the terms and concepts used in relation to the field and the water sector more broadly.
  • Collaborative discussion of the main issues identified with other stakeholders in the sector.
