Green Infrastructure Champions Workshop

Theme: Green Infrastructure Asset Management

Studies have shown that Natural features, or Natural Assets, provide a suite of benefits including recreation, health and well-being, stormwater management, carbon sequestration, air quality regulation, water supply, habitat restoration, etc. These natural features fall under municipal jurisdiction and need a way to be accounted for in Asset Management Planning.
