Holistically Analyzing the Benefits of Green Infrastructure - Guidance for Local Governments

October 2017

The University of Maryland’s Environmental Finance Center developed this document for smaller, local governments with municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4) to evaluate the co-benefits of implementing green infrastructure (GI) in response to stormwater regulations. The report includes a discussion of measurement and valuation of GI benefits, and recommends using the triple-bottom-line framework (environmental, social, economic) to assess the value of GI.  Green infrastructure offers many benefits to climate adaptation and resilience which are detailed in this report, such as flood mitigation, water supply augmentation, heat island mitigation, and public health benefits.

The Benefits and Challenges of Green Roofs on Public and Commercial Buildings

May 2011

From the United States General Services Administration, this report presents the costs, benefits, challenges, and opportunities of green roofs with a focus on the National Capital Region (Washington, D.C. and the surrounding area). The study finds that over a 50 year period the stormwater, energy, carbon dioxide equivalent, and community benefits of green roofs outweigh the costs associated with installation and maintenance.

Let’s Keep Moving 2036 - Alaska Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan

December 2016

From the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, Let’s Keep Moving 2036 provides the overall policy guidance for regional and area planning of long-range transportation (highways, aviation, transit, rail, marine, bicycle, and pedestrian) in the state of Alaska. The plan includes goals, policies, and actions which inform statewide transportation programs and investments through the year 2036. It is based on technical analyses of four key trends, including climate change, that will have the greatest effect on the transportation system - which represents the government’s largest capital investment in the state.
