Working with an interdisciplinary team at Khatib & Alami Consolidated Engineers, I undertook comprehensive mapping of existing green areas including date palm orchards, peripheral agriculture and all waterways (rivers and canals). Mapping then served to propose a conceptual framework for calculating existing per capita green areas as a basis for aligning them with international standards, and to propose a conceptual framework for a green-blue network that serves metropolitan Baghdad in 2030.
