The RECONECT research team at IHE Delft led by Zoran Vojinovic has published an interesting article in the Journal of Environmental Management.
The paper “Assessing the Co-Benefits of green-blue-grey infrastructure for sustainable urban flood risk management” introduces a method to include the co-benefits monetary analysis into the cost-benefit analysis of flood risk mitigation measures. The results show that grey infrastructure has good performances at its primary goal (reducing flood risk), but green infrastructure can bring various additional co-benefits.
