Landscape and green infrastructure
The objective of this project is to establish comparisons on the development experience of green infrastructure between the USA and Spain. To do so, the whole Spanish and American territory will be studied to identify the value of infrastructure (and therefore support and motor development) of all the feasible activities over the entire territory, and the different models of implementation of genuinely comprehensive territorial policies that are in the process of being developed on both sides of the Atlantic will be analyzed.
