The Value of Green Infrastructure for Urban Climate Adaptation
Center for Clean Air Policy, 2011
This report by the Center for Clean Air Policy uses real local projects to compare the economic costs and benefits of green infrastructure to traditional ‘grey’ infrastructure. Green infrastructure approaches such as green roofs, urban forestry, and water conservation can help local governments build adaptive capacity.
The Value of Green Infrastructure for Urban Climate Adaptation presents evidence on how green infrastructure practices can improve community resilience to climate change and yield other economic and environmental benefits.
