The Value of Green Infrastructure for Urban Climate Adaptation

February 2011

In this paper the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) provides information on the costs and benefits of “green” infrastructure solutions for bolstering local adaptation to climate change. The report provides examples of a variety of approaches to incorporating green practices as well as the benefits to urban communities, such as improvements in land value, quality of life, public health, hazard mitigation, and regulatory compliance.   A selection of green infrastructure solutions are evaluated for their performance and benefits, discerning their value for climate adaptation.
