https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/MAES_UrbanPilot_survey_2015
 
The working group MAES has started a survey on the information on urban green infrastructure that is used by various cities and local communities. We want to find out what type of policies, what kind of indicators and other information is being used.
Moreover we want to know what type of information you need to better incorporate urban green infrastructure in decision making. By gathering and evaluating this information we want to bring good focus on the development and dissemination of
knowledge. Knowledge that can be used by other cities and countries to map urban green infrastructure and ecosystem services for inclusion in policy
We hope you will join our survey and help us and others by sharing your information.
We thank you in advance!
