Watershed planning realm has predominantly been posed by human/urbancentric planning practice solely based on socio-economic dynamics, rather than physical and ecological thresholds at regional level. Thus planning, conservation and management efforts in an individualistic way lack of elaborating natural and cultural landscapes in a holistic way and introducing a monolithic planning and management discourse. This inevitably results in a gap between large scale planning scheme and local plans and, consecutively conservation pursuits both in judicial and administrative spheres remained behind the reach of delivering a comprehensive (conservation) framework.
Based on the aforementioned problematic aspect, the hypothesis that this paper suggests is that existing planning process should accommodate a well-defined green infrastructure (GI) scheme at both watershed and urban realms in order to present regional landscape planning, design and conservation brief.
