Urban greenery as the city’s green infrastructure. Land. scape.: Malaysia landscape architecture industry, 28. pp. 10-11. ISSN 2180-0944 (2018)


As an integral part of cities, the role of urban greenery has been widely recognised as part of the green infrastructure (GI) for addressing the environmental challenges caused by anthropogenic factors, for
example, urbanisation and population growth and natural factors, such as environmental degradation that lead to climate change. Benedict and McMahon (2006) define green infrastructure as an interconnected network of green open spaces that provide a range of ecosystem services, from clean air and water to wildlife habitat and carbon sink. According to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment Board (2005), ecosystem services are “the benefits people obtain from ecosystems” (p. vii), which can vary from natural lands to urban landscapes.
