The four-day course highlights leadership and stakeholder engagement, financing and network management, legal and regulatory issues, and support tools for the optimization of the decision-making process. Hear from expert green infrastructure practitioners as they discuss lessons learned on creating success and overcoming challenges, explore trends in implementation from urban to regional scales, and learn about the latest applications of green infrastructure as related to climate change, water, transportation, and ecosystem services.
