Investing in Natural Infrastructure for Biodiversity
and Climate Resilient Communities
This session will speak to the need for public sector accounting to be able to reflect the monetary value of natural assets in Canada, and the need to invest in natural infrastructure (such as wetlands, forests, and grasslands) to attenuate the effects of extreme weather events on people, the insurance industry, and on biodiversity.
Potential benefits will be discussed and profiled through both existing programs and its application for the design of new urban developments.
Emerging business drivers for investment, policy requirements, and recommended actions will also be discussed. View the full session agenda.
