Abstract: Presently the European Union countries are confronted with the need for development, the increase of living standards involving an increased use of resources and energy, and also an increase of pollution. Natural and semi-natural ecosystems are the main sources in the production of resources and energy generation. With the increase in the amount of required resources and energy the human pressure exerted on ecosystems and biodiversity is higher, which implies the need for preservation of these species and ecosystems. Residues arising from the use of resources that emphasize forms of pollution accentuate the anthropogenic pressure on natural capital. Keeping a mosaic structure is an ideal solution to harmonize the development of society with nature conservation. A green infrastructure with lakes and rivers, wetlands, different types of forest, pastures, shrubs including different types of crops, represents the ideal structure to meet both goals.
