About the Green Infrastructure Intervention
European Structural and Investment Funds provide European Union Member States with financial assistance to deliver the EU2020 strategy of Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth, increasing economic activity and employment across the EU.
The 2014-2020 ERDF is structured around specific themes known as Strategic Interventions, administered by Lead Partners. The Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention has been approved, with SNH as the Lead Partner.
The aim of the Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention is to create better places and enhance the quality of life for urban dwellers by improving the quality, accessibility and quantity of green infrastructure in our major towns and cities. The creation and improvement of multifunctional green infrastructure will help to deliver successful places, address inequalities and provide opportunities for better health.
The Strategic Intervention will be run through a Challenge Fund – The Green Infrastructure Fund – by providing funding through a competitive selection process for eligible activities for a small number of strategic Operations.
