Course Description: This three-hour course led by NOAA Coastal Services Center staff will introduce participants to the fundamental green infrastructure concepts that play a critical role in making coastal communities more resilient to natural hazards. Through lectures, group discussions, and exercises, participants will identify natural assets in their communities that improve coastal resilience and will identify key stakeholders and planning processes that can support green infrastructure network design and protection. Green Infrastructure is a network of natural areas that benefits nature and people. The green infrastructure approach to community planning helps diverse community members come together to balance environmental and economic goals.
