Green infrastructure is defined by the European Commission as a 'strategically planned network of natural and semi-natural areas with other environmental features designed and managed to deliver a wide range of ecosystems services'. Therefore, green infrastructure strategies can help societies understand the value of the benefits nature provides, especially in urban areas and in response, organize the investment necessary to sustain and enhance those benefits. The aim of this PhD thesis is to evaluate the quality of selected urban settlements in Slovakia based on the indicators of green infrastructure and their utility value, which they bring to society and that can be applied in landscape planning. Proposal should also include the Nature-Based solutions (NBS) that broadly aim to address the challenges associated with ecosystem resilience, climate change, human health, and well-being.
