Presenters: Roy Brooke (moderator), Rohan Lilauwala and Natalia Moudrak
The session, co-presented by Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI), Green Infrastructure Foundation (GIF) and the Intact Centre for Climate Adaptation will describe various types of green infrastructure assets — both natural assets and engineered living systems — that can help to mitigate negative impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on Canadians. Session participants will understand the importance of natural assets and engineered living systems for municipal service delivery; understand the emerging business case for green infrastructure and some of the means for determining this; and learn about opportunities for both public sector funding and private sector financing models for green infrastructure solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
