Natural infrastructure can play a key role in increasing resilience to the impacts of climate change and extreme events. Many natural infrastructure strategies have the ability to physically stabilize landscapes, provide buffers against hazards, absorb water and create cooler ambient temperatures.

This report provides infrastructure decision makers and practitioners with a compliation of best practices in the design and application of natural infrastructure, information on social and economic benefits, and promising solutions for overcoming barriers to implementation. 

The research used to develop this report involved reviews of existing literature as well as interviews with experts in the field of natural infrastructure.
