Session 2 – Green Infrastructure Lifecycle Management and Costing
Presented by the Green Infrastructure Ontario (GIO) Coalition.
This three-part course will provide municipal staff with an understanding of how to incorporate green infrastructure into the asset management planning process. Participants will learn about developing levels of service for green infrastructure as well as how to undertake lifecycle management and risk/criticality assessments for green infrastructure assets. For each of the topics, we will cover examples of natural, engineered, and enhanced green infrastructure assets. Learn more about the course.
ABOUT SESSION 2:
In this session, participants will learn the typical stages of asset lifecycle management, from acquisition to disposal, and how these may or may not apply to green infrastructure. Development of a lifecycle management strategy is important because it identifies the management activities needed to ensure the provision of the proposed levels of service. We will also cover approaches to determining lifecycle costs for green infrastructure assets with some extra focus on natural assets. Finally, we will look at some examples of lifecycle management approaches for different types of green infrastructure.
