An increment of urban flood risk in many areas around the globe is expected. Thus appropriate flood risk management is crucial. Although strong evidence exists demonstrating that green-blue infrastructure is a sustainable solution to reduce flooding, its adoption is still slow. The objective of this research is to help decision-makers to adopt adaptation strategies to cope with flood risk while achieving other benefits. This work contributes to enhance planning processes for flood mitigation combining green-blue-grey measures. It provides tools and knowledge to facilitate holistic decision-making, in order to ensure safe and liveable urban spaces for current and future conditions.
