Planning And Design Of Urban Green Networks In Stockholm, Na Xiu, Maria Ignatieva, Cecil Konijnendijk Van Den Bosch Jan 2016

Planning And Design Of Urban Green Networks In Stockholm, Na Xiu, Maria Ignatieva, Cecil Konijnendijk Van Den Bosch

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Green and blue spaces, together with other land use changes are determining factors of habitat fragmentation, biodiversity loss and decline of ecosystem services in urbanized areas (Adriaensen et al., 2003; Collinge, 1996; Kong et al., 2010; Teng et al., 2011). In attempt to tackle the issue, network connectivity is regarded as a suitable approach from an ecological (CookVan Lier, 1994) and social perspective (Teng et al., 2011). Landscape-scale connectivity is normally built on a ‘patch-corridor-matrix’ model to describe structural or functional continuity in a spatial and time configuration (FormanGodron, 1986). A graph-theoretic approach therefore can provide an operable way of ...


The Potential Roles Of Biodiverse Green Roofs In The Extending Urban Green Network, Krisztina Szabó Jan 2016

The Potential Roles Of Biodiverse Green Roofs In The Extending Urban Green Network, Krisztina Szabó

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The role of urban green network is increasingly needed due to urbanization and the growing urban population. The high number of buildings, the different infrastructural developments and the high quantity of covered surface do not allow increase greenery on the ground level; there are few residual spaces that can be turned into green areas. One solution could be the vertical walls and green roofs which can considerably help developing urban green network of the future (Susca et al., 2011). Due to the acute conflicts between high density development and limited land, many European, American and Chinese cities adopted an effective ...


The Portuguese National Ecological Network - A Mapping Proposal, Natália S. Cunha, Manuela R. Magalhães Jan 2013

The Portuguese National Ecological Network - A Mapping Proposal, Natália S. Cunha, Manuela R. Magalhães

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In Portugal, the Ecological Network (EN) was included in the Portuguese legal system in 1999 according to which it must be considered, delineated and implemented in all landscape plans at all spatial scales. Despite of all EU policies, in Portugal the EN is defined by the set of areas, values and key systems for environmental protection (article 14th of the Decree Law n. º 46/2009). Furthermore, at national level there is only the Program for National Planning Policy, which doesn’t include any EN delimitation.

This paper presents a methodology for the delineation of the National Ecological Network (NEN ...


A Greenway Network Vision For Metro Boston, Peter G. Furth, David Loutzenheiser, Steven Miller, Peyman Noursalehi Jan 2013

A Greenway Network Vision For Metro Boston, Peter G. Furth, David Loutzenheiser, Steven Miller, Peyman Noursalehi

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Urban greenways are attractive for walking and especially for bicycling because they offer a pleasant and near-traffic-free environment in an area with high population density and rich with destinations. Unfortunately, urban greenways are often not connected to one another, requiring cyclists to negotiate heavy traffic getting from one greenway to another and thus diminishing their utility. In the Boston region, a planning and visioning effort is underway to promote the vision of a network of connected greenways offering continuous pleasant, low-stress routes by bicycle or by foot between origins and destinations across the urban area. The network plan emphasizes both ...


The Concept Of The Territorial System Of Ecological Stability (Tses) In The Planning Practice In Slovakia, Zita Izakovičová, László Miklós Jan 2010

The Concept Of The Territorial System Of Ecological Stability (Tses) In The Planning Practice In Slovakia, Zita Izakovičová, László Miklós

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The creation of ecological networks represents basic strategy of the nature and landscape protection. This principle is declared in many international documents, as are: AGENDA 21, Convention on biological diversity from Rio Summit °92, Pan-European strategy about biological and landscape biodiversity, EECONET in European programme IUCN, Landscape Convention etc. The maintenance of valuable natural ecosystems is basic principle of NATURA 2000, too. From these international concepts and programme outcomes national programme of ecological networks. Development of documents for ecological networks has been intensive for the last decade. This development can be seen as a response to fragmentation of land and ...


Reviving Of Natural Networks In Hungary, Krisztina Filepné Kovács, Adrienn Egyed Jan 2010

Reviving Of Natural Networks In Hungary, Krisztina Filepné Kovács, Adrienn Egyed

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In the lecture we explore the habitat restoration works in Hungary in general and we are focusing on the area of Hanság where the latest rehabilitation works enhanced the ecologic value of the area reviving the former richness of marshlands. With the reviving of the former landscape values we are making recommendations for the elaboration of Greenway Natural Jewels of Hanság.


Angelgreen: Green Network Development Strategy Of The 13th District Of Budapest., Péter Gábor Jan 2010

Angelgreen: Green Network Development Strategy Of The 13th District Of Budapest., Péter Gábor

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The planning of greenways and green networks is relevant not only on regional scale and in rural and suburban areas but also in the scale of settlements or even districts within the cities. The AngelGREEN is the green network development strategy of the 13th district (also called as Angel-land) of Budapest. The strategy has been elaborated in order to help the district’s Environment Management Non-profit Ltd. in its objectives of developing and maintaining the green spaces owned by the District Council. The strategy serves as a framework to determine priorities in the company’s management responsibilities, and it is ...


A Concept And Case Study Of Ecological Network Planning In The Fertő-Hanság Basin In Hungary, Éva Konkoly-Gyuró, Dezső Nagy Jan 2010

A Concept And Case Study Of Ecological Network Planning In The Fertő-Hanság Basin In Hungary, Éva Konkoly-Gyuró, Dezső Nagy

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The concept of ecological networks has emerged from the landscape planning on the one side and from the landscape ecology on the other. Landscape planning has been seeking to create greenways and green networks for people. Whereas landscape ecology provided the scientific basis for the assessment of landscape structure thus gave the opportunity to turn the nature conservation approach from the protection of isolated nature reserves into a spatial system approach. A systematic analysis and evaluation of the existing ecological network provides a larger context for the habitat preservation, so an opportunity of more efficiency for the nature conservation. However ...


Ecological Networks: From Regional To Metropolitan Strategies. The Northern Region Of Portugal And Oporto Metropolitan Area, Teresa Andresen Jan 2010

Ecological Networks: From Regional To Metropolitan Strategies. The Northern Region Of Portugal And Oporto Metropolitan Area, Teresa Andresen

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Planning for change across landscape scales in Northern Portugal through the definition of ecological networks has proved to be a challenging exercise. The outputs produced between 2004 and 2009 by CIBIO, a research unit at the University of Porto, demonstrate the complementarities of landscape planning at the regional and metropolitan scales and between regional ecological networks for environmental protection and a metropolitan network of parks.

Through the five years of research, we were moved by the idea of providing solutions for better living in the ‘rural-urban compact’ where the Porto Metropolitan Area is embedded. Gutman (2007, pp. 385) defends that ...
