The Importance of Urban Green Infrastructures for Realizing Carbon Neutrality in Cities: A Synthesis and Meta-analysis

Abstract: To evaluate the importance of urban green infrastructure in achieving carbon neutrality. Methods: The relevant articles about urban green infrastructure were searched in foreign language database (Science Direct). The search period was from 2015 to 2023, when the most research results were obtained. Literature screening, using RevMan5.4 software for Meta analysis of data. Results: Finally, 26 literatures were included. According to Meta analysis, compared with other traditional infrastructures, urban green infrastructure can effectively improve urban heat island effect, rainwater treatment, air pollutants and noise pollution. Conclusion: Compared with traditional infrastructure, urban green infrastructure is more conducive to urban sustainable development. Therefore, urban green infrastructure plays a very important role in achieving the goal of carbon neutrality.

Keywords: Urban green infrastructure; conventional infrastructure; carbon neutrality; meta analysis.
