Green infrastructure describes the network of multifunctional natural resources and ecosystem in the regions including essential features such as the Ezichi River, wetlands, parks, open spaces, productive landscapes, and recreational areas. The key components of ANAM’s green infrastructure are the Ezichi river, dense forestry, wetlands, and seasonal swales.

Since the preservation of natural habitats and ecology within the urban development is a key consideration, these same spaces will be used strategically to balance biological systems, regulate micro-climate, weave greenspaces strategically into and throughout the city, and beautify the urban landscape. Strategies to integrate, preserve and optimize the green infrastructure within the master plan include

  • Integrated green spaces, wetlands, ponds and agricultural areas for productive and decorative purposes within urban fabric
  • A continuous and accessible system of environmentally significant areas
  • Enhanced waterfront as a social and commercial amenity
