The ‘Wijkgroenplan binnenstad’ (inner city neighborhood green plan) is a community-based agreement that is part of a wider initiative by the municipality of Utrecht in the Netherlands to create neighborhood green plans for every area of the city. The neighborhood green plans are a collection of local greening projects, which were developed and selected in consultation with residents to create more, better and more accessible greenery in the inner city district through the implementation of nature-based solutions. The plan - which ran from 2014 to 2017 - emphasizes the structure of the inner city, which is characterized by a system of canals with wharves, the "singel" canal that surrounds the city centre, and various squares and courtyards. Greenery plays an important role in the inner city district, as it contributes strongly to the quality of life of the residents and the micro-climate.
