As part of JPAC’s commitment to address water at each of their meetings this year, as well as Council’s annual theme “Climate Change, Adaptation and Resilience,” this session will address “Water and Climate Change: Adaptation through Green Infrastructure.”
Participants at this meeting will discuss how green infrastructure and land-use planning have been used throughout North America to manage the effects of changing stormwater patterns in urban and rural settings. They will also address the co-benefits of their proposed approaches for human health, particularly related to sewage treatment, restoration of water quality, access to clean water, and heat island reduction, as well as for biodiversity conservation and greenhouse gas reduction.
Public participation at the Council’s open session and the JPAC forum is free of charge.
