Description
The benefits of green infrastructure (like urban trees, rain gardens, and green roofs) 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 help individuals, especially those in the public sector, to value the benefits provided by green infrastructure in their communities.
