    Research funded by the Carnegie UK Trust has found that green and blue infrastructure owned by Derry City and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) will provide £1 billion in benefits designed to improve the wellbeing of local citizens in the local authority area over the next decade.

    The findings were highlighted today at the launch of council’s Natural Capital Account during a special meeting of the Strategic Growth Partnership. The Trust is currently providing support to DCSDC’s Strategic Growth/Community Planning Partnership via participation in its Embedding Wellbeing in Northern Ireland project.

    The report, which was funded by the Trust, was developed by Vivid Economics in conjunction with the council and Community Planning stakeholders. It is accompanied by a Green Infrastructure Plan which aims to protect, improve and increase green spaces (vegetated areas) and blue spaces (waterways), to provide a multitude of environmental, recreational, economic, health and wellbeing benefits for the public.
