Description
The benefits of green infrastructure are well known, but difficult to value. This difficulty creates an obstacle, where green infrastructure is often not considered when making important investment and asset management decisions. The goal of this course is to introduce individuals (especially those in the public sector) to introductory economic principles, and help them begin to value the benefits provided by green infrastructure in their communities.
