New Research Paper: Nature-based Solutions for Climate Resiliency in Washington DC & Puerto Rico

Check out the latest publication by Urban Breezes’s Helen Santiago Fink: Nature-based solutions are progressively gaining importance in the promotion of climate resiliency, ecological stewardship and climate action at the urban scale. In light of increasingly disruptive weather patterns and the associated social and economic impacts, local governments are starting to incorporate green infrastructure applications into policy, building codes, and development processes. This paper outlines recent developments of nature-based solutions at two locations driven by different rationales: Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
