Poster: Planning for Multi-Benefit Green Infrastructure - A Comparative Approach

Monday, May 8, 2017 | 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

AICP members will learn about approaches to overcoming barriers to multi-benefit green infrastructure implementation. The Trust for Public Land's Climate-Smart Cities program has been deploying their 'Smart Cities Framwork' in 20 cities through which we are conducting a deep organizational look at how cities need to operationalize a new multi-benefit approach that permanently overcomes silo walls and sectoral barriers.  Partners are interviewed to assess their current activities related to green infrastructure, access to funding sources, barriers, and collaboration opportunities, among other topics. This allows TPL to develop an accurate baseline for how science and spatial data are currently being used to prioritize and design green infrastructure, identify missed opportunities for integration, and design the decision support tool to foster an interagency approach. This poster will illustrate what we have learned from deploying this approach in cities across the country and highlight best practices and lessons learned for replication.
