Green Infrastructure Partnership Evaluation

This survey provides vital intelligence to feed into a review of the Green Infrastructure Partnership (GIP)

It is now five years since TCPA took over the management of the Green Infrastructure Partnership (GIP) from Defra in 2014.  It is timely to take stock of what has been achieved and to consider how the partnership might move forward.  This evaluation project was approved by the GIP sounding board in June 2019 as part of ongoing work in a NERC knowledge exchange fellowship on mainstreaming green infrastructure. The evaluation was bounded within the following terms of reference approved by the GIP sounding board

  • To review past work and outputs of the GIP and to use this intelligence to help plan a future vision and direction of travel for GIP in line with key policy changes and increasing influence of green infrastructure in research, policy and practice.
  • To identify the current and likely future drivers of GI research, policy and practice to inform the evaluation.
  • To review terms of reference, priorities, funding and governance structure of GIP
