It traces the reasons why these three approaches have emerged and discusses the attributes of each. Following this, it examines the potential of the green infrastructure approach as a means to realize 'evolutionary resilience' in designing urban environments for enhanced drainage management. The paper then contrasts the three alternative approaches to flood risk management and identifies some implications of advancing the green infrastructure concept in urban design activities.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Copyright (published version):||2014 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||Green infrastructure;Flooding;Risk management||DOI:||10.1080/13574809.2014.944113||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
