COMMUNITY CAPITAL / INFRASTRUCTURE FORUM 2: Understanding the Wisdom of Municipal Natural Assets Mangagement
Could low-cost, sustainable infrastructure solutions be all around us? Could forests provide water purification services? Could wetlands offer stormwater management services? For a growing number of leading-edge governments, the answer is yes, and the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI) is helping Canadian municipalities seize this potential.
The MNAI is helping to change the way municipalities deliver everyday services, increasing the quality and stability of infrastructure at a lower cost and reduced risk. In doing so, MNAI offers a solution to the twin problems of aging infrastructure and ecosystems decline facing many, if not all, Canadian municipalities.
