Good policy and planning is dependent on knowledge and assessments. The physical form of a master plan or green infrastructure system is one level of study. Another is the dynamics of the various partners involved in planning: public sector, local government, private sector, citizens. Historical analysis provides a glimpse of trends over time or after key events. International comparisons demonstrate cultural variations or good models of urban greening policy and planning. Economic analysis of these issues is a fairly new and valuable approach.
