Evaluation of green infrastructure from a whole-of-service life perspective

I examine the life-cycle performance of urban green infrastructure to facilitate deeper understanding of the role of green infrastructure, support the optimisation of social, environmental and economic benefits, and minimisation of detriments. I seek to advance a methodology for holistic green infrastructure life-cycle assessments serving the needs of decision-makers.
