The Green Infrastructure Partnership (GIP) is a rapidly growing network of more than 1,000 people and organisations that support the creation, enhancement and promotion of green infrastructure (GI) in the UK to improve quality of life, health, ecological diversity, resilience to climate change and economic attractiveness. Membership is free – to join email:

The GIP enables people to share research, innovation, news and best practice via newsletters and events. Its strategic focus is to influence key decision-makers by ensuring they have appropriate evidence about the value of GI to inform their decisions.

The GIP was launched by Defra in October 2011 as an outcome of the government’s Natural Environment White Paper, The Natural Choice: Securing the Value of Nature. In April 2014 the TCPA took on the management of the GIP after Defra withdrew. The TCPA receives no government funding for the GIP and is grateful for sponsorship and in kind support from Arup, Forest Research, Groundwork UK, The Landscape Institute, The Land Trust, the National Trust, Natural England, the Urban Regeneration and Greenspace Partnership, the Canal & River Trust and Wild West End.
