Blue and Green Cities: The Role of Blue-Green Infrastructure in Managing Urban Water Resources

This book offers new research on urban policy innovations that promote the application
of blue-green infrastructure in managing water resources sustainably. The author argues
that urban water managers have traditionally relied on grey infrastructural solutions to
mitigate risks with numerous economic and environmental consequences. Brears explores
the role urban water managers have in implementing blue-green infrastructure to reduce
ecological damage and mitigate risk. The case studies in this book illustrate how cities,
of differing climates, lifestyles and income-levels, have implemented policy innovations
that promote the application of blue-green infrastructure in managing water, wastewater
and stormwater sustainably to reduce environmental degradation and enhance resilience
to climate change. This new research on urban policy innovations that promote the
application of blue-green infrastructure in managing water resources sustainably will
be of interest to those working on water conservation and policy. Robert C. Brears is the
founder of Mitidaption, Mark and Focus, and is Director on the International Board of the
Indo Global Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture. He is the author of Urban
Water Security (2016).
