Greenways should be better connected with the places where one can have everyday leisure. River delta, drainage and irrigation system, polder techniques, which are important structures of landscape should be taken into account while developing leisure and recreational landscape. Instead of concentrating on the country parks, landscape quality should be developed everywhere. - Rural communities cannot exist and thrive without appropriate public services and infrastructures, which are still inadequate in rural areas in China. Invest in public services and infrastructures in rural areas will contribute not only to agricultural production growth, but also to the development of rural non-farm sectors.
Keeping these areas protected allows these special moments to continue happening! Wilderness cleans our air and water. Wilderness areas filter and clean the air we breathe and the water we drink through natural processes such as evaporation, precipitation, and natural filtering in rivers and streams. They also ensure that our watersheds are protected so that they can provide drinking water to many cities as well as rural communities. Few people live close to a designated wilderness area (not including our area), yet many people are connected to them everyday.
Certain goals for urban life were stated and to achieve these goals, five prerequisites of a ‘sound’ urban environment were identified. Jacobs & Appleyard suggested seven goals ‘essential for the future of a good urban environment’: • LIVEABILITY – A city should be a place where everyone can live in relative comfort. •IDENTITY AND CONTROL – People should feel that some part of the environment belongs to them, individually and collectively – some part for which they care and are responsible, whether they own it or not. • ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITIES, IMAGINATION AND JOY – People should find the city a place where they can break from traditional moulds, extend their experience, meet new people, learn other viewpoints, and have fun • AUTHENTICITY AND MEANING – People should be able to understand their city (or other people 's cities), its basic layout, public functions and institutions; they should be aware of its opportunities. •COMMUNITY AND PUBLIC LIFE – Cities should encourage participation of their citizens in community and public life.
While having a green city can be a source of pride and aid in attracting forest investment. This can be seen in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore who use reclaimed derelict areas in a number of cities to enhance the landscape (FAO, n.d) 126.96.36.199.2. A habitat for wildlife Trees provide a habit for wildlife and aid in the promotion of biodiversity-ecosystem which is dependent on a diverse variety of bioforms. As such, urban forestry in Georgetown will aid providing a habitat for biodiversity, which who have otherwise been difficult for these species. In a report, they indicated that a single oak tree, a species commonly found in many American cities, can support up to 500 species of insects and invertebrate species (NLC, 2013).
Garden city itself provide varieties of jobs within easy commuting distance of homes and opportunities to the residents. In addition of principles, beautifully and imaginatively designed homes with gardens, combining the very best of town and country living to create healthy homes in vibrant communities are important to
This has a very adverse impact on the planet and changes the natural cycle in a negative manner. Hence, learning to construct buildings and monuments in an environmental friendly way is extremely important for sustaining life on the planet. Through better planning and architecture, a lot of wastage can be avoided and green fields and natural fertile lands can be left as such without using them for construction purposes. Thus, the architects play a very important role in developing a sustainable design. In
By providing accommodation to students and elders, the probability for older generation to live isolated is reduced. Intergenerational friendly urban areas promote stretched, healthier and more autonomous ageing. Indeed by fighting seclusion, solitude and vulnerability, while respecting the private life of each individual, the new urban area proposal wants to stimulate a better life for both generations. AN ATTRACTIVE URBAN AREA The new urban area provides attractive amenities such as a commercial centre zone that includes grocery stores, general doctors and others services. Spacious and attractive green areas are designed to improve the quality of life of its inhabitants and visitors.
Wetlands also release vegetative matter into rivers, which helps feed fish in the rivers. Wetlands help to counter balance. The human effect on rivers by rejuvenating them and surrounding ecosystems. Many animals that live in other habitats use wetlands for migration or reproduction. While wetlands are truly unique, they must not think as isolated and independent habitat.
Urban agriculture has become more popular in the last couple of years as concerns about the environment have combined with increased curiosity in health and community-building issues. Despite the benefits of urban agriculture in terms of health, environmental and the economics that come with growing food and raising animals in urban areas, resources such as land and type of land available for use for urban agriculture varies with municipalities and so does the type of agriculture appropriate for each area. Although big metropolitan cities support urban agriculture there are many challenges facing urban farmers. One of the major challenges facing these famers is access to water. Access to water is difficult for urban farmers, the costs involved with installing water lines to long-vacant lots, hooking into existing water sources or paying ongoing costs of using water at retail rates.
