Greenspace Exposure

2024-04-24 | Science Direct

Green space exposure is an important concept in the field of urban planning, which is used to evaluate the accessibility and impact of urban green space resources on residents. A large number of studies have shown that exposure to green space can effectively reduce the population's disease risk and overall mortality, and enhance residents' sense of belonging and participation, thereby promoting social health. However, the intensification of urbanization has put increasing pressure on urban green spaces, including the reduction and uneven spatial distribution of urban green spaces. Therefore, how to maximize the health benefits of green space within a limited time is the focus of current scholars and is also one of the keys to achieving sustainable urban development.
