Low-Cost Resiliency: Ecosystem Services and the Municipal Budget

Low-Cost Resiliency: Ecosystem Services and the Municipal Budget

Human Health and Ecosystem Services

In the last few decades, the ecosystem services approach has been integrated into public management and local governments’ decisions through cyclical, integrated management and planning. A considerable number of municipalities have embarked in using integrated and regional nature of ecosystem resources to leverage solutions that conserve resources, increase climate change resiliency, save money and make environmental common sense.

This session covered:
Exploring sustainable landscape opportunities in reducing runoff, increasing stormwater infiltration capacity and capturing toxins before they reach local waterways.

Building understanding the cost benefit associated with using this approach in climate change resiliency.”

Participants left this session with knowledge and skills necessary in making informed decisions related to budgeting and investing resources on solutions related to climate change resilience and sustainable development activities.
