The Value of Green Infrastructure for Urban Climate Adaptation
This report provides information on the costs and benefits of green infrastructure practices, such as eco-roofs, green alleys, and urban forestry. The report provides examples of a variety of approaches as well as the benefits to urban communities, such as improvements in land value, quality of life, public health, hazard mitigation, and regulatory compliance. It also examines how local governments can use managerial, institutional, and market-based approaches to reduce climate risks and maintain resilience.
