From Panama to Canada: Urban Water Sustainability & Natural Asset Planning

What: Online Webinar

Date: October 23rd, 2018

Around the globe, local governments and communities are beginning to shift towards “natural asset planning” to promote and ensure urban water sustainability. Historically, nature has been undervalued, underpriced, and overused and there has been no easy way to account for ecosystem services, such as flood control provided by wetlands.

In this webinar, the speakers described communities that are doing the interdisciplinary work required to better understand and account for natural assets, such as creeks, aquifers, and forests, in their municipal planning.
