Green Infrastructure

Green infrastructure is an approach to resource management that can deliver powerful environmental, economic, and social benefits. This approach can be implemented at a broad, landscape scale – through land preservation or reforestation initiatives – and at the smaller site scale – through stormwater management practices that mimic nature by soaking up and storing rainfall. In either case, EFC assists communities in realizing a range of green infrastructure co-benefits, including cleaner air and water, habitat protection, flood mitigation, and economic returns. See below for examples of green infrastructure projects that EFC supports.
