Using case studies from around the world, this special edition of our monthly journal explores academic, policy and practice articles to signpost how green infrastructure can be better configured, communicated and employed to deliver responsible placemaking.

In his foreword, Professor Scott, a leading researcher in green infrastructure policy and practice, argues that the movement towards widespread acceptance of nature-based solutions is stuck in a rudimentary phase, noting that there is still 'widespread resistance to making things happen on the ground'.

This edition looks at the reasons why the movement towards widespread green infrastructure has stalled and how we might start to address these fundamental weaknesses through the planning system.
